BenVK...I apologize because you are correct....the caps were introduced in 1940.I did a quick fact check in my nonexistent reference library as prompted by the above B***S*** Mad post.I admit my error.I know that the tropical uniform went into initial production and trials as early as 40...thats a given(we all know they werent produced between jan-feb 41).Apparently I had mentally deleted the info that the cap also went into production at the same time.For some reason(Likely reading to many refernce books) I had assumed the impression the cap was introduced at a later date in 41.

Dave, no need to apologize to me. I learn't that fact from someone else and someone else will probably learn it from you now. That's what it's all about, isn't it.
