The Adrian Helmet Celebrates 100 Years

Post by Peter_Suciu » Fri Sep 04, 2015 10:42 am

Earlier this year I wrote a piece on the 100th anniversary of the French M1915 "Adrian" helmet for FoxNews.com:

However, I had hoped to include some comments from the curators at the Musee d'Armee in Paris. The comments didn't come in on time, but I did hear from the museum so I opted to use those for a piece debunking some myths for Military Trader:
