The Score: French Adrian Helmet

January 5, 2011

In a recent stroke of good fortune, I was bestowed with a French Adrian Helmet.  The Adrian Helmet was designed and introduced during 1915 in France for World War I, and was used until shortly after World War II.  These helmets were originally made for men in the trenches, but quickly became the head-piece for all soldiers, from multiple countries, in the field during wartime.  This was also the same helmet Winston Churchill would done on his visits to the front when not sporting a pith helmet.  I cannot say enough about not only the perfect shape, but the anchor medallion on the front, an obvious selling point for me.  I’ve looked around for similar helmets (with anchor medallion), and have only seen a couple floating around, firmly placing this up there as one of my favorite possessions.
