Iíve always had a bit of a thing for the 1915 Adrian helmet and should have bought a few good examples when they were cheap and readily available but I didnít and so what I have are helmets missing bits or with post WWI repaints.
Hereís a medic helmet I bought last weekend, the badge isnít the original to the helmet as can be seen by the colour and where the original badge prongs were but this one has been there a long time Iíd say. The helmet originally had a medic badge fitted as the outline can be seen when the present badge is prized upwards. I took a chance and removed the liner to treat the leather and all prongs survived. The only marking I could find is the liner size.
