    Cplc stands for "Caporal chef" which is French for Master Corporal (Mcpl). Lessard would be the soldier's name. 676 would ne the last three digits of his social insurance number (sin) which was also used as the soldiers serial number in those days.

    Helmet

    If the helmet is a M1, these were used well into the late 1990s; therefore the 'last three' could also be from the Service Number.
