Belgian WWII Army 'Casque Adrian modèle 1926' (M1926) Adrian Steel Combat Helmet and Liner. MISC 116. - MISC 116
The Casque Adrian modèle 1926 was used by the French and Belgian armed forces during the World War II. The French and Belgian forces used the Adrian helmet in the Battle of France. After the French capitulation, Vichy France, the French Resistance and some units of the Free French Forces adopted it until 1951 in the French army and the 70s for the French police. Based on the M15 French Adrian Helmet the M26 helmet was modified to be stronger and was made from one piece of metal. The joining rim around the helmet was no longer there. Several smaller ventilation holes were made in this model in placement of the large hole in the M15, as this was considered a design weakness. In the period between wars Belgium started to produce a M26 helmet with a wider rim and a different comb than the French one. This Belgian M1926 helmet retains most of the original black paint, complete with the original six tongue leather liner, chin strap, and lion’s head front plate. 7-7 1/8 size for a medium sized head. The price includes UK delivery. MISC 116.

The Regiment of Dragoons was raised in Reading by Brigadier-General Phineas Bowles as the Phineas Bowles's Regiment of Dragoons in July 1715 as part of the response to the Jacobite rebellion. In 1718, the Regiment was placed on the Irish establishment and posted to Ireland, where it remained for 75 years. In 1751, the Regiment was officially styled the 12th Dragoons. In 1768, King George III bestowed the badge of the three ostrich feathers and the motto "Ich Dien" on the regiment and re-titled it as The 12th (Prince of Wales's) Regiment of (Light) Dragoons. A young Arthur Wellesley joined the Regiment as a subaltern in 1789. The Regiment took part in the Siege of Bastia in April 1794, which took place in Corsica, during the French Revolutionary Wars.

At the Battle of Waterloo in June 1815, the Regiment charged down the slope to support the Union Brigade of Medium Cavalry. In 1816, the 12th Light Dragoons was armed with Lances after the Cavalry of Napoleon's Army had shown their effectiveness at Waterloo and were re-titled 12th (The Prince of Wales's) Regiment of (Light) Dragoons (Lancers). In 1855, it reinforced the Light Cavalry Brigade in the Crimea after the Charge of the Light Brigade at the Battle of Balaclava. In 1861, the Regiment was renamed 12th (The Prince of Wales's) Royal Regiment of Lancers. The Regiment was stationed in India between 1857 and 1860 in response to the Indian Rebellion and in Ireland from 1865 to 1870, before fighting in the Second Anglo-Afghan War in the late 1870s.
