The Russian Adrian.
Permalink   


We've discussed once or twice how many, if any, Adrian helmets Russia acquired during the War. I've just stumbled on this apparently very detailed account:

Comments welcome.

Excellent find. Includes nearly anything you could want to know about Tsarist Adrians. Many thanks for sharing.

Since no sources are given, I hope someone can confirm the story.

Mr. Jacob Caputo at Alexander and Sons has very kindly pointed us to what seems to be an excellent source, a book that has been around for a couple of years:

It's not cheap. Maybe start dropping Xmas hints soon.

Thanks for digging that out. A bit beyond my budget, though. Might need to box the local librarian into compliance.
