    It is French M26, and interestingly doesn't have the slots to mount the badge on the front which points to it being a Spanish purchase helmet.
    Here is a link to 110 Brigada Mixta Repblica - EPR - 110 B.M.
    This is more general for Brigada Mixta ans easier to translate Brigada mixta - Wikipedia, la enciclopedia libre
    Personally, I'm not sure about the writing, 'COMPANIA' looks to be written over the rust. Very interesting.
