    Hi James, I really like the look of these models, M1 hybridised stylee!

    I nearly picked one up myself before xmas but it was missing the front badge, and figured it would be hard to source a replacement so did not bother, thanks for showing these unique models here

    Hi James, no sadly I do not own one though as previously discussed came close to sourcing one or two over the years, my guess as to why they seem to be missing the frontal badge...perhaps to de-militarise them ???

    One of these models ended yesterday on ebay for a fairly reasonable price...I forgot to bid on it ,oh well next time!

    sorry kris i missed your last post as i was typing ,many thanks for the superb referance pictures ,do you know the helmets correct model designation and also where i might pick up a spare frontal insignia if any available ,regards james
    Missed that message too, as it was on the bottom of the page.....! ;-)
    The name of the helmet is "Casque Gendarmerie belge de maintien de l'ordre" in French, meaning "order keeping helmet".....or "casque d'intervention de gendarmerie belge"....it has several other names!
    Here is one for sale; Casque d'intervention de gendarmerie belge - Coiffures et Casques (1115744)
    Here is a other site you should check in order to find those helmets; Leger, Oorlog & Marine - Overige Verzamelstukken | 2dehands.be
