Details & Specs

The same style most famously seen on the heads of Parisian riot police battling students, striking workers, and far-left activists during the political upheavals of May 1968. The protests, backed by a coalition of communist and socialist political groups, barricaded the streets of the capital and grew so violent that French president Charles De Gaul fled the capital with leaders around the world fearing an armed revolution.

Authentic historical wear for your Cold War collection.

A relic seen in use during the 1960's, 70's and 80's, from a period when France existed as a key battleground nation between the competing influences of East and West. Put into action by Gendarmerie Nationale police forces, each Helmet carries unique dings, scratches and scuffs each with its own story to tell.
