Belgian WW1 helmet ?

Article about: hi, picked this up today but I'm not too hot on European helmets. Can anyone confirm if this is a WW1 Belgian helmet? It has a lion mask badge to the front and the front/rear peaks are 2 sep

    Well Dave, it is very difficult indeed to make out what it's saying.
    Let me know when you're willing to sell him. Maybe I will bring the helmet back home. :-)

    Can't make it out eighter!
    But it's color seems black over a musterd brown color!?
    If so it could mean it was re-issued to the Gendarmerie.
    Just like the second one from the left.

    you could be right although close up it looks more like dark brown than black and to my mind is just many years accumulation of grime. I probably won't try cleaning it - just in case!

    OK Krisse, it'll probably go on a well known auction site as I haven't a clue what to ask for it but I will take it to some dealer friends first to see if they can give it a fair valuation. But I'll give you a heads up before I list it. regards, Dave
