#F001 FRENCH FOREIGN LEGION 4 REI PHOTO ALBUM
Extremely rare French Foreign Legion photo album.  This Legionnaire was a member of 4 REI who was sent to Vietnam to participate in the battle of Dien Bien Phu before returning to Morocco.  The photos in the album are an amazing glimpse into all aspects of life of a French Legionnaire in the 1950's.  The album has over 125 photos, with some bonus duplicates at the back which are not shown. Look closely and you will see photos in combat, at various outposts, relaxing, weapons, friends graves, vehicles, woman, and much more. The FFL and 4 REI in particular are a small and elite fighting force, and photo albums of this quality just don't ever come around. This would be the centrepiece of any FFL collection, you won't be disappointed with this one and the photos don't do it justice. $450

#F003 French 'Adrian' M1915 Artillery Helmet
Original WWI M1915 French 'Adrian' artillery helmet.  Excellent original condition and never cleaned or messed with.  Original factory dark horizon blue paint with large 'RF' flaming bomb insignia and crossed cannons.  Nice liner and chinstrap that seems to have been in place forever. Name etched into the from inner rim, and a small nail size hole in the rear rim I am unsure the purpose of.  This is a wonderful example of the iconic WWII French helmet that would be extremely tough to upgrade!  *Sold*
