    Default M1926 Adrian steel helmet French Vichy Milice

    Just got these steel helmet worn by members of the Milice; a collaborationist organisation.
    I seen several with painted 'gamma' emblem (symbol of the Milice), never saw one with a metal insigna.
    I'll try to make better pictures of the way the insigna is fixed on the inner side, later on.

    I carefully losen a pad holding the insigna, in order to see the back of it.
    The construction of the helmet and the condition of the liner, didn't permit any inside view to the pads...
    I hope you like it!

    Although not my area, this is the first time I have seen a metal badge to the front too.

    Looks good to me.

    Nice one Kris!

    Cheers, Ade.

    Nice one Kris, I have seen this one on oakleaf for a while with a metal insignia. I always wondered if it was good or not.

    I think I have one in my files with painted insignia, I took a pic of it in the South of France at an local exhibition during the liberation celebrations. If I can find it I will post it for interest sake.

    Cheers, Ade.
