A quick question regarding the jackets.

The infantry initially wore the M41 Field Jacket commonly referred to as Parsons Jacket and later the M43 Field Jacket.
The Paratroops initially wore the M42 Jump Jacket and later the M43 Jump Jacket.

Now my question.. was the infantry M43 jacket and the M43 Paratroop jacket the same jacket? My research seems to indicate this.

Yes they are the same jacket. The M43 trousers are also the same except the airborne added the cargo pockets.
