    Hi James.

    Sorry for the delay, and yes the net is held on with small hooks which attach to the rim, and is a standard feature of French salade nets.

    Thanks for looking Mate Wink

    Hello,

    Nice helmet!
    For the rank, if it is just a white bar, it is a sub-lieutenant! Wink

    That's a really good point James, I'm really not sure, the F1 was an evolution of the M-51, which in turn was an evolution of the M1!!!

    I am biased but the F1 is my favourite shape in respect of steel lids, I would be very keen to find out more of the design of these lids, I believe Danois was responsible for testing prototypes, and it was introduced in '78.

    But yeah the side profile is kind of soviet in profile!!! Wink
