The first "modern" steel helmets were introduced by the French army in early 1915 and were shortly followed by the British army later that year. The M15 helmet became known as the MK I or "Brodie" after its inventor John Leopold Brodie and by July 1916 over a million of them had been delivered. The design allowed for easy mass production using "Hadfield’s" manganese steel and protected the wearer from shell fragments and air-burst shrapnel.

Marcel Duchamp; "L.H.O.O.Q." (1919). | One of Duchamp's 'readymades' (i.e. taking mundane, often utilitarian objects not generally considered to be art and transforming them, by adding to them, changing them, or simply renaming them and placing them in a gallery setting). | The letters L.H.O.O.Q. pronounced in French sound like "Elle a chaud au cul", "She is hot in the arse"; "avoir chaud au cul" is a vulgar expression implying that a woman has sexual restlessness.
