Article about: no liner for my helmet Rene ,

    Default French 1951 OTAN

    Hi Guy's

    Here is my latest post.....

    The liner and steel shell are of different dates, and the liner was totally unissued from what i can tell, and i glad it is the earlier type.

    I believe these helmets were used by the French forces in VN.

    Overall a nice M1 inspired helmet.... Viva la France!!!

    Hi Gaz,

    the first type of this helmet was from plastic, but then replaced by this model cause it had material problems. ( you can see it at my album)

    I like the French M51 helmets, they were used by several countries, including the French Indo China wars, Algeria, Morroco, etc

    and they dont usually cost very much, yours looks like the M51 INDO

    Hi.

    Thanks mate, it is a M51 but i don't think it was used in VN, as the liner is spotless, the shell has had some use though...these helmets always seem to come with different dates for the liner/shell.I've seen or heard of any that actually match.

    I have seen pictures of the French foriegn Legion, wearing these types in VN in the late 50's..well cool!!

    Thanks again.
