    Army helmet, (Dragoon, cuirassier) will be in steel whereas firemans will be in copper.

    Standard cavalerie will look like the below. Difference between cuirassier and dragon will be a small decoration on top of the helmet.



    Fireman will look like the below.



    The 2 on top are mle 84.

    Hope this help

    Bruno
