French Adrian Helmets

French02
French02 - The shell is an M26 model French Adrian helmet. When acquired, it was in good condition. The liner mounting brackets were present and are original. There were a couple of dints in the dome which I tapped out. The original dark green paint mostly existed on the inside but was in poor condition; patches of the original paint existed on the outer. There are a couple of dints to the aluminium comb. This shell was stripped, primed and repainted in dark-green. An infantry badge is fitted displaying the ’flaming bomb’ with RF (Republique Francais). The liner was purchased from the UK and is a new hand-made leather example copied from an original. Superb item; head size 58cm. A new-made leather chinstrap with adjustment buckle is fitted. $299 AUD

There were a couple of dints in the dome which I tapped out and the comb is the steel type. The original dark green paint mostly existed on the inside but was in poor condition; patches of the original paint existed on the outer. There were some black ink-stamps to the inside that I could make out; they are incomplete but I could read – D and MA_.OU and MAB_LILLE. This shell was stripped, primed and repainted in dark-green.
