French Helmet with DAK symbol

Greetings, Folks!
I a new to this forum, but am excited I found it. I am hoping someone out there might be able to shed some light on an item I purchased years ago at a militaria sale. 

I have an olive colored French style W.W. 2 helmet with a DAK palm tree symbol stenciled on the left side and C.N.T.  On the inside (handwritten) is "Betera" and the name "Miguel Baixauli".

Does anyone have any thoughts about this item and its origins? 

Best regards,
Mark

Continued,
The "C.N.T." is handwritten on front of helmet.

Mark,
Thank you for replying. I will take some pictures and post them.
I discovered the C.N.T., as you might know, fought in the Spanish Civil War prior to World War II.  I also discovered Betera is a city in Spain.

Will post those pictures soon. 

Regards,
Mark
