    A second WW2 dated military Monitor to help redress the balance against the 4 current Thermidor examples! Features the same complex lock-off pump mechanism, with its accompanying hex bar pump rod, as the others posted. Main point of contrast I can see between the Thermidor and Monitor examples is the very weak legends on the Monitors ( see also http://classiccampstoves.com/threads/25865 ). On this one even the first and last lines of the lighting up instructions are barely registered. But at least it was nice and clear which type of fuel was required and who it belonged to :) .

    Amazing that the date stamp is so deep yet there is no signs of a dent.

    Hi, I have always thought that many, if not all stamps were applied before final assembly of the tank body and base was carried out. This would mean that the area of stamping could have support on the back face when markings were applied, and this would prevent denting of the tank.
    Best Regards,

    Ahhh..
    So they register them as minitary items before they are finished. Neat.
