Re: Belgian M15 Adrian and a Belgian Shako

Thanks for the nice comments guys, i'm really happy with these two. I don't know the complete history of the 11th line regiment but they fought the entire war from 1914 to 1918.

Belgian M15 Adrian and a Belgian Shako

Some of my latest finds are these two. I ussualy stick to cloth headgear but as a collector of Belgian ww1 militaria you can't go without a M15 Adrian. I'm not an expert on Adrian helmets, but I liked the color on this one(looks original to me), so I couldn't resist... Sadly there's no liner and a d...

Re: Weapon identification time – need your help

I'm not really a weapons expert but I'll give it a try.
The first picture looks like a French machine gun,
the St. Etienne M1907.
Second picture could be a german MG08.
The machine gun in the front on the third picture is a french Hotchkiss M1914.
I can't help you out with the other ones.

The website where I got the picture from gives this information:
Saxon Karabineer regiment Heavy cavalry regimental musician NCO cap.

almost impossible to fix...

Unknown mutze

I bought this one last week at a fair. Condition is pretty good, but there's a kokarde missing. I have looked for information but I can't find anything similar. It was pretty cheap so i'm afraid this might be fake... The white piping doesn't match with anything I can find. Anybody who could help me ...

A few months ago i bought my first schirmmütze, and a couple of weeks ago my second one... No pickelhaubes, but that might change in the future :) I'm hoping to learn a lot here and ...
