    Bill,

    I can't think of any English sites, but if you just want to see photos, you can take a look at the WWI French site. Of course, you will have to register. Here's the address,

    Bill,

    The first war Adrians were also used after the war, but basically they were made from four pieces, the skull, front and rear visors and the comb on the top. The later model M1926 was a two piece, with skull and visors being stamped out of one piece of steel and then the comb. There are some nice pictures on this forum. Check out the pinned threads dealing with uniforms. There are some full mannequins of French soldiers.

    Also, here is a nice thread on the Wehrmacht Awards forum.
