    Default French indochina 1950's parachure training helmet

    Early 1950's version of the French paratroopers jump and training helmet, very similar to the pre war version except he earlier type was made of leather, but almost identical in shape and construction. These were also used by the Royal Laotian army in the 60's as army helmets as shown in the B&W photograph. The dated label is from another mint unissued example found on the web.

    Thanks and thanks for the link, though my French is not quite up to it, though I think I understand enough for what I want.
