Country of Origin: Belgium
The iconic M1 Helmet was first fielded by the US Army in the Second World War, and soon many European nations followed suit, making their own "Euro Copies" with various minor changes but maintaining the same basic shape and function of the classic US GI M1. The Belgian helmets were one of the earliest adaptations, for the Belgian Army and first adopted in 1951, named with the designation "Mle. 51".
As per the standard GI helmets the Second World War, they were constructed with a steel shell and removable lining, but constructed to be slightly more globular in appearance. The helmets were a common sight throughout the Belgian Congo conflicts, and later on as the Belgian Army engaged in UN operations around the world. They would eventually see a long service life from the early 1950s, well into the 1990s.
