A French Heavy Cavalry helmet from the Third Republic. These helmets are of the same pattern as those of the Second Empire, but feature the flaming bomb denoting the Republic. This bomb was later used on steel helmets of the French infantry in World War I.

  1. Over 20 yrs ago I was thrilled to visit the home of Mrs. van Kirk..buying her husband book collection, 400 of his model planes etc. AND UNTIL RECENTLY, THOUGHT HE WAS DEAD!

    Now see with excitement a jolly happy senior sitting at a table on your site!

    I would be very happy to make contact with him. I have just retired from a 37 yr Out of Print Bookstore…and as my email suggest, I was a sgt. in the Womens Royal Air Force, hence my excitement when I bought some of his *estate*…

    Very plesaed to fall onto this site. regards all..I have 6,000 military books.
