    Default Anyone recognize this helmet?

    Found in a cave near the Suwannee, about 100 feet from the entrance. The sticker means "The Sleep of the Wrecks', so the owner might possibly be French.

    The clip on the UK SL3 is intriguing.

    If anyone has any ideas about who its wonder might be, I'd love to hear them.

    When Kyle told me you pulled this out yesterday, I half expected there to be a skull in it.

    Only the French would mount the helmet light in such a location.

    Maybe it's a safety feature; he/she won't be able to fit in real small stuff with the light mounted like that...

    Yep some lovely French divers had a blast flutter kicking their way into little river the other day after nearly flooding a kiss classic on the surface.

    Could be actually Canadians. Did you check if it has weed inside rather than batteries?

    I'm guessing the helmet was left there on purpose sign of respect.
