Somehow I managed to delete two of my posts where I was testing picture posting. Now I have one more I wanted to remove but for the life of me can't figure out how? It's in my Arty post on new finds. It just says removed right now.

What is the difference between the cockades with the large holes that fit over the posts and the ones with a small hole? Were they both used and how do you get the ones with the small hole on the helmet? Do they somehow go behind the posts? Anyone have a pair of original Prussian cockades (mannschaf...

So I decided to go ahead and am quite pleased with the results. The leather liner parts and chinstrap got their aging from the decaying leather dust and rust as I worked the helmet and liner band.

Re: French Artillery Adrian Helmet

I still think it is an M15 that has been modified. Look at the four piece construction and the vent hole under the comb. I think it might have had the later liner added some time later. Hence the rivets.

Thanks for the reply.

French Artillery Adrian Helmet

I just bought this helmet and wondered about the different liner attachments. They are different than any I have seen in most M15s. Almost similar to the versions in the M26.

Perhaps the attachments were added later? Or could they be a late war variant?

Thanks.
