This is a circa World War I M1915 French Army Artillery "Adrian" helmet. It comes to us from the estate of Lieutenant William Edwin Bown, a 397 T.M.U. (397 Transport Militaire Unite, Groupe Hemart) driver from East Aurora, New York who served in France with the unit for four months. Bown eventually settled in Exeter, New Hampshire. The helmet is painted in blue and has a large bomb insignia upon the front. An American Field Service badge of Lieutenant Bown's is also for sale separately (please see link at bottom of page for information). One of the men standing in front of the vehicle in the above photo is Lieutenant Bown (photo not for sale with the badge or helmet).
