    Default WWI French Tankers Helmet

    I picked this up for a friend of mine who has a WWI museum in MN. I wanted to document prior to giving it to him since I have not ever seen one before and thought it might be a good reference for future use. Interesting item.

    I think this might be from WW2 rather than WW1. My reasons for believing this are that the army insignia is the circular version created for the 1926 Adrian which I don't think was around during WW1, it bears a strong resemblance to the French WW2 tank helmet, and I think the French tankers from WW1 used a standard m15 with artillery badge for head protection. Still an amazing helmet, the scratched in name really makes it and the leather looks to be in great condition too.


    Heres a link to a thread that shows multiple WW2 French tanker helmets I'm pretty sure the bottom one has the same shell as yours: French helmets model 1935
