    Hi, I think where Russian forces were issued with helmets in the First World War it was either imported Allied models like the French 'Adrian', or Russian-made versions of them. The helmet above is a 1936-onwards Soviet design that was used in the Second World War, along with other designs.

    Late in WWI the Kerensky government began to issue the model 1917 Finnish Sohlberg kaska also. Many of the Sohlberg kaska were still around, and in use by the Bolsheviks, and early Red Army, but the Model 1915 Adrian, and the Russian made variant would have been most common. There were a small number of the model 1905 Cavalry kaska, but this was limited at best, and used only by Cavalry Regiments.

    No, it is what it says in the thread title. Russian not Prussian.
