Original Belgian WWII Helmet (Army?)
Original Item: Made prior to WWII, these are
black steel WWI type, "Adrian" style helmets bearing a brass helmet
badge showing the Belgian Royal Crown over cypher. Complete with lining
and chin strap. A rare and unusual original WWII helmet.
Note: These helmets are original! However, we
are advised that the Army badge had a Belgian lion motif and it has been
suggested that this Royal Crown Badge was used under German occupation in
WWII by Belgian security forces who were being forced to cooperate with
the invaders. In any event it seems to be an extremely interesting variant,
perhaps not encountered before.
