Belgian Helmet model 49 used by Civil Defence. This is actually a normal green army helmet, ABL,
painted dark blue.Someone wrote BRUTUS on the front, I have no idea why and what it means.
Normally the Belgian flag is overpainted as well but on this helmet, the paint started to fade off.
Note the text in the liner: ABL 1949 X.B. 1951.
Model 1949 made by Xavier Buisset made in 1951.
