    When did the M43 field cap start to appear, like what month or something specific. I'm not sure if anyone knows but I don't. I'd settle with "Summer of 1943" or something general like that, I get it. Maybe nobody knows for sure and that's okay.

    Thanks for the help in advance.

    I'm surprised a bit of web research can't answer your question.

    I actually did make an attempt but it was in vain.

    It was mentioned in the "Deutsche Uniformen-Zeitschrift" from July 15, 1943. With
    page 7 it is literally said: will be introduced.
    Must have a look about mentioning it in the "Heeresverordnungsblatt" or "Allgemeine
    Heeresmitteilungen
    ". At the moment I do not have the time. Maybe later this day.

    Can't find it there "like a shot"!, but it is known to me that for the police this form of
    headdress was introduced with an order from May 27, 1943 and as such published in
    the "Ministerialblatt des Reichs- und Preussischen Ministeriums des Inneren",
    1943 page 896. In the above mentioned DUZ-magazine, but page 8 the introduction for
    the police was noted. Practically all organizations took over this form of headdress!
    So the DUZ announced the cap for the German airfoce in the magazine from August
    15, 1943. Page 8.
