    Hi, here are some photos of a British Army No.12 stove that I have repaired recently. It had suffered from fire damage and prolonged water immersion, I'm not sure if the two events were connected:

    Well done George! I've cleaned one of those cases myself and they are not the easiest to clean internally. Lots of corners and clips that get in the way and snag your fingers. But being stainless steel, you don't have to deal with rust.

    Hi Terry, As I recall, your No.12 was Grade 1. This one was around Grade 4 when I started.
    It was sold for spares or repair on a BIN offer.

    You are correct about the nooks and crannies in the case though.
    Howver, these stoves work really well once properly "set up"
    Best Regards,
    George,
