I stumbled across this old fire helmet and I cannot find anything exactly like it to compare it to. Can you help me with this helmet?

Thanks so much.

    I'm not sure you have a fire helmet. Several countries had a comb on top of their fire helmets. What I am sure you have is an M-26 French military helmet. French helmets had a comb on top during both wars, but there were differences in the manufacturing process between a WW I helmet and a WW II helmet. Because of the construction, this is an M-26 model which was used throughout WW II.

    Thanks for your quick response. I had a feeling this wasn't a fire helmet. Thanks for your help.
