    The auction of this set has just finished on Ebay. The photos are by kind permission of the seller. I have not seen this shape of conical water flask before.

    The shape is so it can fit Up into the bottom of the Kettle. Is there not a similar one maybe different maker on here someplace.

    Not sure if I did that right but it was your post that I saw. Some pictures of a young Charles and The D of E is feeding twigs into a Sirram Volcano Kettle. You can tell it is a Sirram, as the conical water container (unique to Sirram).

    Is this then like a Quiz to find out if we pay real attention to your posts?
    I appreciate the time you spend and the details of your postings.

    Thank You Sir.

    No John, not a quiz :lol: . It was just that I had not seen the conical water carrier with the step 1/3rd the way up. Maybe you were supposed to hold the stepped area whilst pouring? All the others I have seen are straight sided, like this one - Link . I'm not sure if the step is an older version that was changed, or a newer version.

    Regards,
    Terry

    Hello Terry

    Nice stove. I also have only seen the non-stepped conical water container - or should I say that I have only noticed that one.

    Any ideas of dates? - is the stepped one before the smooth-sided one?

    Hi Trevor.

    The kettle has the name plate fixed to the side, whereas my three all have the name on the top edge in raised relief. I think that the one with the plate is an earlier version as it is less common but I've got no evidence - just a feeling in the water. I've only seen one other with the plate.

    Regards,
    Terry

    Hi Terry

    My thoughts are much the same as yours, unless someone can tell us different . . . . . :-k
