    Well, the "Flaming Grendade"+"RF" emblem is definitely French. (RF = Republique Francaise)

    I think it might be a french police helmet. If i'm wrong, sorry. Helmets are not my cup of tea.

    I think it's a French Gendermarie police riot helmet, a model F1 helmet with leather straps

    French Gendarme Helmet. You can attach a face-shield to it as well.They are quite common. The surplus store here in downtown Seattle has had one for sale for at least 8months...Personally, I wouldn't contaminate my helmet collection with one.
