  1. Fantastic photos, anything Belgian or French is very much underrated in my opinion. I picked up a photo the other day which has the same insignia on the sleeve as in the two photos immediately above, does anyone know what its for? I was thinking an infantry scout maybe? I'd like to have a go at colouring the photo so the colour of the insignia would be helpful too as there's nothing I could find online to help me. Thanks for any help.
  2. There's one here for sale https://www.militariadefoerier.com/a-46459633/headgear-helmets/belgium-helmet-m-33-civil-defence-belgische-helm-met-embleem-van-de-civiele-bescherming/ I'd have thought it was a bit pricy for post WWII especially if the liner is the thin, cheaper looking modern type but I don't collect them so a search for Belgian civil defence or perhaps civiele bescherming might show more results.
  3. Almost a year after the original post but if it's still of interest and based only on the badge and helmet colour, it appears to be a Belgian civil defence helmet from the 1950s. Tony
