Are you sure these are Russian soldiers? I saw they (some of them) have helmets attached on their knapsacks, apparently the French Adrian type.

I just found this photo of Red Army soldiers wearing Adrian-style helmets:

During WW1 France delivered to its allies (Belgium, Serbia, Greece, Romania, Russia) a number of M.1915 Adrian helmets. Russia received a few tens of thousands in 1916, decorated in front with the Romanov double headed eagle. A simplified version of the Adrian helmet, made in one piece of steel, was also ordered in Finland (then a part of the Russian Empire) at Solberg factory. These helmets never equipped the whole Russian army. Some of them were captured by the Romanians when the Russians mutinied on the Moldavian front in 1917-18.
The Russian Adrian helmets were carried during the Civil War especially by some White units as a symbol of their attachment on the Allied cause. During the Communist era, Adrian helmets, now repainted in light khaki and decorated with a big five pointed red star, were carried during the Moscow 1 of May and 7 of November parades, in the 1920s and 1930s, but apparently only the troops of the Moscow garrison received this headgear. From 1936, gradually the Soviet troops were equipped with the M. 1936, and later, M.1940 helmets.

How come, C-2, you usually make much better photos of the rear side than the front side of pictures? :roll:
