Although this holding was mostly tested on the front in Anzio, it will be also, but in a scope, tested infime D-day, as evidenced by these two photos below (note to the right as they are new!).
This jacket is equipped with 4 pockets and is carved into a green satin cotton fabrics (WD n ° 7). It is closed with 7 buttons on the front, and is tightened to the level of the hips with elastic system. The sleeves are clamping legs and a bellows for sealing. In February 1944 a new jacket M-43 appears, but the change is not visible. Indeed, the main difference is the addition of a record sewn under the pass.
