    Nothing remarkable about this gas bottle mounted stove, but the Valor Veritas name had me intrigued

    I was aware from handling Valor and Veritas paraffin stoves that some cross-fertilisation - bit of badge engineering maybe - must have gone on in the past but this link of the company names on a product was new to me.

    Unremarkable butane stove as I've said. Not for backpacking that's for sure, with a 9-inch diameter trivet and intended for 904/907-series Campingaz refillable cylinders

    So, 'Valor Veritas'

    An internet search of company registers established that Falks Veritas had a name change to Valor International Limited on 31st December 1976. That company ended its days as Veritas International Limited (final dissolution) on 6th October 2009, having dropped the 'Valor' name on 14th April 1992.

    The stove box revealed another branch in the family tree - Valor Heating Limited - and that manufacture of this particular product was outsourced to South Africa

    More research needed ...

    As a student in 1973 my girlfriend (we're still married) worked a fly-press in the Valor factory in Erdington just down the road from where we lived in Gravelly Hill, about 300 yards from the centre of the Spaghetti Junction interchange. We used to walk or cycle along the canal part of the way to college in Saltley and we could look out of our back door and see "Fort Dunlop" about 1 1/2 miles away.
    No connection to the trivet but the box stirred up memories.
    Happy days......
