    A British turtle helmet? with a Belgian liner. ABL (Armée Belge/ Belgisch Leger). That's all I know.

    Tony..I have no idea what this helmet is, not BW or German IMO. World helmets would be a better spot for it..so thats where I have placed it !
    Prost ! Steve.

    Well, this is interesting. Its clearly a strange thing, and has caught my eye because of the Belgian liner (I have recently been having a bit of a thing with Belgian helmets). It certainly isn't a British Mk3/4 shell, although it does sorta kinda slightly look like one form the angle, but I'd put money on it being a French Mle51. With a Belgian liner stuck inside it. The thing is of course that the Mle51 is a two-piece helmet like the US M1 and is not drilled for a crown-mounted liner. And such a thing would be completely in the wrong place for practical use. Most peculiar.

    What can we say for certain (ish); French Mle51 shell, Belgian liner for either the Mle49 (Mk2 clone) or the short-lived Belgian Mk3 clone. I'm tempted to say that This Child Ain't Right. Can we see a side-on profile shot of the shell for certainty. Don't buy it unless you have a penchant for the unusual and/or cobbled together in a shed.
