Americans of the Abraham Lincoln brigade ready to strike a blow against fascism while wearing what appear to be Italian M.16 helmets.
The Spanish Civil War (1936–1939) Was a brutal, repressive, and for this Americano, difficult to follow struggle which pitted several not particularly sympathetic groups - some quite repugnant- against each other.
The "yugo y flechas" (bow and arrow) is an insignia of the Spanish Nationalist group "Black Arrows".
I never get tired of that classic Adrian-inspired design.
No surprises inside. I often wonder, when examining the helmets in my collection, how the former wearers fared.
