    I know i'm not fortunate for it to be one of these as only 300 were supposedly made , but the shape is certainly similar:

    It's a tank helmet as it's got the pouches for earphones.
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Hi Edelweiss,

    I think it is a French pre war Gendarmerie motor helmet. These helmets were used by French para's during training in the early years after the war.

    Cheers,
