Stereopticon helmets

I was recently loaned a set of stereopticon cards from the Great War period.
Among them were some nice views of helmets.

Close up of French infantryman serving a machinegun.

French mounted troops wearing the m.15.

French artillerymen.

French soldier with a captured German flamethrower.

Finally, this shot, which is a gem.  Members of the US 89th Division
with divisional insignia very uniformly painted on their helmets.
Sometimes seeing double is a good thing.
