    That one is indeed a helmet worn by ZOUAVES or TIRAILLEURS ALGERIENS , north African troops or Frenchmen assigned to them.

    Don't know why but I've always been fond of these helmets and these two in particular are very nice-

    Hello,
    They are nice M26 Adrian helmets, with M37 round insignia.
    It looks like the infantry helmet had another helmet on top of it for some time...
    Thanks
