    Hello from France

    Here is my gift for my 40th birthday : a helmet for round gsoldier of french Air force (Adrian modèle 1935/37).

    His color is dark blue and have a date stamped: 1940.

    His life was nice: air force and "résistance" between 1940 and 1945. His owner during Résistance was René GAULT.





















    Thank you for reading.

    A great helmet and piece of history. I've always associated these with tankies, didn't know the air force used them too.

    Thank you :-)

    Theses helmets werre first for "motorised" (tank, armoured car and rider) and, since 1937, used by ground personnal (air defense or anti-aircaft, I guess).

    I just buy a french book about helmet and as soon as possible, I will give further information about theses helmets.

    Cheers

    Hello
    I have no further information or picture... the use of this helmet seems mysterious!
