    M51 OTAN - National Gendarmerie Helmet.

    In France, the National Gendarmerie (French: Gendarmerie nationale) is a branch of the French Armed Forces, in charge of public safety, with police duties among the civilian population. It also contains a military police force and a special forces component(GIGN).Here is a M51 OTAN - National Gendarmerie Helmet from my collection, and one of my favourite helmets,this particular model belonged to a Gendarmes named Normand, feel free to comment.

    Thanks Graham, there are a number of these around at the moment on the surplus market.

    My local surplus shop ,sells these for roughly £30.

    I would not think of doing it to my lid, but I would assume if someone was thinking of recreating a TAP 56 model these would be ideal, due to the three point chinstrap fixings, £30 compared to mega bucks it's food for thought Wink
