Yes 30s m 40s and into The 50s . I have seen them dated in red. Most seen look to be unissued surplus . I do believe I remember seeing early photos
Of Spaniards wearing them in Civil War photos though . They are quite recognizable by the buttons

They are nicely made, but unfortunately they pop up on this forum jacked into Afrika Korp now and then.

There are also pictures of members of the Spanish Blue Division wearing them behind the front. I guess some members wore them on leave or enroute to or from the front line positions. Jim

Looking at the attached thread Nick G has a nice pic of the same type Spanish sahariana jacket being worn and a date of 1943 on the rear of the postcard !...

As far as I am aware, this pattern was introduced by 1943 regulations and phased out in 1960. Obviously modeled after the Italian sahariana bush-jacket also seen during the Spanish Civil War.
