    Hi Archie,

    Lovely looking stove & well sorted too, good safety mod is the burner plate from the petrol stoves instead of the original cast iron item, should you want one for a later date, Stu (Loco7stove) does them, :) :lol: :content: :D/ wheeee!.

    My 1929 Primus 96 works well, having had it's seals & lipstick replaced, I'm told it survived Dunkirk in 1940, then it brewed up a few mess tins of tea on whatever kerosene was left in its tank before the boys were taken off the beaches.

    Best wishes & enjoy your return to school=John.

    ---------------------
    If in doubt, brew up.

    PS, here's the Battle of Britain movie opening with the Dunkirk beach scene & the BBC commentary.
