PORTUGAL Rare WWI M1916 ribbed helmet 1916-1918 Portuguese helm casque
And so Portugal replaced this helmet for the helmet used by the British army, the well know Brodie helmet. This helmets are rare and not easy to find complete. This one is complete with original liner manufactured with cloth, cork and leather, and also has the original leather chinstrap. This particular helmet was painted after the war in green colour, and was used by the Portuguese army in the 20's in the 14th of Infantry located in the town of Viseu. The number "14" and the two rifles in yellow colour were painted below the green colour that was carefully removed, this made possible to bring back to history one very rare variant. Both number and rifles are very well preserved and are 100% original, they were not repainted.
