    Hi here are some photos of a well-used, and somewhat abused, British Military No.12 cooker from 1996.

    I have just fettled this stove, fired it up using paraffin, and it passed its "Kerophile Tea Test" this morning:

    These are sturdy stoves, as evidenced by the number of knocks and fire damage which this one survived whilst if Military service. I bought it direct from a Military surplus sale.

    Best Regards,
    Kerophile.

    Hi, the Military No.12 cooker weighs in at over 5kg, or around 11.5 lbs.
    It is constructed of stainless steel and some brass.
    Regards.
    Kerophile.

    Hi, I forgot to say the case dimensions are about 10 in x 10in x 5in. ( 250mm x 250mm x 125mm )

    Enjoyed your photos very much, George. What a great stove you have.

    It's great to see these continually maintained and running.

    Thanks,
