    Hi, here are some photos of a Military Issue Phoebus 625. This particular stove came with an Aluminium canister to hold the stove, spare burner, and selected jets, washers etc.
    This stove has been adapted for use with kerosene (paraffin).
    For some reason the Military issued this stove with the huge unwieldy windscreen/pot support.
    This also entailed the extension pieces for the control knob and pump.

    Here's a variation on a theme, again used I believe by the German Military.

    1229594418-PC170002_opt.jpg

    My understanding is that this is used for an autoclave (pressurised steriliser for medical instruments that enables the water to be heated beyond the normal boiling point). This would have exactly fitted in the rim of the stand. Unfortunately I don't have the autoclave to go with it.

    I have three trains of thoughs about my potential use for this. Either add a circular grill rack to make an extremely stable pot rest for the 625 or any other similar size three legger; find a Dutch oven that fits the rim; or finally this would make an extremely stable base for a Coleman oven. Some foil would also make a cheap and effective windshield.

    A few notes - the stove is the paraffin version (625P). Also, as the stove is in situ, what you can't see is that there is a circular indendation in the base of the stand that exactly fits the 625 making the whole set up even more stable. Finally, the bottom of the legs of the stand flare out at 90 degrees and have a hole in each. This allows the stand to be fixed to a surface or even pegged down on grass. Again, obviously set up for maximum stability and reducing the risk that a pressure vessel containing super heated water is going to end up flying across a field hospital if someone knocks into it.

    Seasons Greetings Motoshi.
    You are too modest. You appear to have two complete stoves in mint condition.
    My NATO 625 is a just a "user".
    Best Regards,
    Kerophile.

    Hi, I have decided to add some additional detailed photos of this stove, as they might be useful to fellow collectors and restorers:
