    A WW2 era military specification Shaw's Governor brand stove with field serviceable pump and economy steel tank. Still, however, retains some of the 'Svea look-alike' aspects of the late 1930s Governor stoves. It is tempting to speculate as to whether there was some sort of deal between Shaw's and Sievert at that time.

    Steel tank eh? Painted and transferred up to look brass? Sneaky!

    I have an HS&S WW2 steel one of the exact same pattern, it had been tinned and painted olive drab (scruffy looking now but good patina).
