    There is a small amount of information in a Svea 1960 catalogue here.

    nmp,
    you can not find much.
    I post pics below for readers.
    Credit to Trevor, Svea No.969 Spirit Can is found in 1960 catalog . The specific page Trevor links is "standard packings" this gets you right to the answer :thumbup: of which stove models it applies to: No. 1 - 5R, 150 - 155, 165, 175.

    I know relatively nothing about lamps but have the impression that some of the unique pour spouts are designed to accommodate lamps? Of course they are a useful accessory for stoves as well.

    Above models answers are re stoves and OP asks which models "...it went with?"
    If your asking, Was a No.969 "included" with the models listed?
    No.
    Reading the pages offering each stove (No.s 1, 5, 105/106) it is not included but is available as an accessory. Catalogs refer to "spare" parts where for this items I've said accessory.

    Thanks for your excellent replies most useful thanks. I am afraid I have none of the stoves listed to go with this can apart from the No 5 But it's a nice can to have for use with any stove!
    Thanks @OMC and @shagratork

    Cheers Nick

    Mine came with an Optimus 930, it is the original as supplied with the lamp when new.

    The 969 can came as standard with the Svea 158 military stove as seen here.
    I have the same stove. It is mint and comes with the 969 can.

    @Matthew92 I do have an Optimus 930 and getting the meths into the pre heating cup has always been a pain, I will try this out and see if it helps I don't know if I am being thick about it without the can! image.jpg

    I haven't checked mine but this type of can often had a false bottom which held the right amount of meths for a prime. Pouring would dispense that measure. Put the can upright & the bottom section would fill up again.

    Definitely a stove, as well as a lamp accessory - & of course, Svea didn't 'do' pressure lamps.
