    Hi all, my recent purchase just arrived today a Adrian navy/colonial M15. I purchased this from fmj44.com which I recommend!. Frederik which owns the site found this helmet himself while visiting France and this helmet along with 5 others were found in a barn in St.Lo which he also provided pictures of. I do believe a fellow member on here schwerpunkt has a M16 or M18 from the same grouping.

    I was never too into the French helmets but seeing as this was a scarce navy/colonial with the original blue I needed it. It unfortunately doesn’t have the liner but it still has the chinstrap and the old barn bugs inside! I’ll take it.

    Congrats. Despite the missing liner, it will display well. Has a good look to it

    I'm still missing one of these. Just don't find that many on this side of the pond.

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them
