    Default Unidentified Adrian Helmet - Belgian?

    I purchased this nice-looking Adrian-style helmet a few years ago at a militaria store and hit had no background information. I assumed it was French but on closer inspection it does not have the characteristic badge slit in the front. It does appear similar to what I've seen of Belgian Adrians (m31) but this piece came with no badge. Any help IDing this is greatly appreciated!

    This could very well be a Spanish used M26. The Spanish republic purchased helmets from France.

    These were delivered without the frontal slits for an emblem.

    Have a look at Joseba's excelent site: ESPAÑOL ADRIAN FRANCÉS

    not Belgian, IMO French for export.

    I am now convinced this is a French export Adrian, probably Spanish Civil War. Not sure if that particular shade of paint is a clue or not. I read most were either blue/grey or khaki. This is more of a green.
