BELGIAN WW2 ARMY M1926 ADRIAN STEEL COMBAT HELMET
BELGIAN ORIGINAL WWII ARMY M1926 ADRIAN COMBAT HELMET
This Belgian M1926 helmet retains most of the original olive green paint and is complete with the Belgian Lion badge on the front.
Comes complete with the original six tongue leather liner, and lion’s head front plate. It also is sold with the partial chin strap that could possibly be repaired.
Based on the M15 French Adrian Helmet the M26 helmet was modified to be stronger and was made from one piece of metal. The joining rim around the helmet was no longer there. Several smaller ventilation holes were made in this model in placement of the large hole in the M15, as this was considered a design weakness.
In the period between wars Belgium started to produce a M26 helmet with a wider rim and a different comb than the French one.
