    Default WWI Adrian style helmet!?

    Hi everyone!
    Recently acquired this helmet thinking it was a french WWI adrian helmet. Since it was missing the emblem in the front I bought a separate one..... When I tried to stick the emblem in the helmet I noticed it didn't fit. After some research I found out that my helmet was not a WWI Adrian.
    I'm kinda stuck and was wondering if any of you would recognize my helmet!

    Hello Larry,

    To my mind this is a former (French made) Serbian or Yugoslav M15 Adrian, with it's emblem removed. This helmet was captured by the Bulgarians and later refitted with a different liner, hence the extra rivets you not normally encounter on Adrians.

    The holes for the emblem were not meant for a French flaming bomb, but the Serbian coat of arms.

    Cheers,
    Emile
