[R] Parsing unusual date format

If I have a character string like
d <- c("1990m3", "1992m8") #March 1990 and Aug 1992
what is the easiest way to convert it into any standard date form; for
d <- c("01/03/1990", "01/08/1992")
I looked at as.Date but it doesn't seem to address my problem as I have an
"m" stuck in the middle of my character string which R does not recognise.
Would be very grateful for any help on this.
