WW1 French Chasseur M15 Adrian helmet

A very good WW1 French Adrian for troops of the 'Chasseurs' .
Most of the 31 battalions of infantry served on the Western Front in WW1 with detachments sent to the Italian front in 1917 as reinforcements. It is interesting to note that the underside of the helmet has a khaki paint finish remaining in places quite possibly indicating this soldiers deployment in such a theatre before returning back to the trenches of France. An early production helmet it has had its first very light blue factory paint finish overpainted with a thick hand brushed dark blue as per the order of 1916. The Chasseur badge is firmly affixed & totally original to the helmet. Interior has first pattern one piece liner with red trouser material used in the construction of its underside cloth band. Corrugated air vent strips are still in place to sides & rear. . Chinstrap is original to the helmet & has had a repair to one part where it at one time became seperated.
A helmet that has clearly seen much action with all of the scuffs & chips to the paint of a well fielded Chasseur.
