    I think two burner military use of GB.
    For what it was used is not understood.
    Is it for the medical treatment?
    The product number is not understood.
    Please teach if there is a person who knows.

    I would guess so. It must have been used for medical purpose, probably at field hospitals.
    The fifth item in the instruction sticker says something like; 'After reaching sterilisation temperature, close the right control knob'

    Since they are talking about sterilisation, my guess is it's a heater for an autoclave, or similar.

    Hello Motoshi!

    Christer's guess is right. It was used for medical purposes.
    The yellow sticker on the tank says:

    1. Fill the tank 3/4 with gasoline. Tighten lid.
    2. Put tank under pressure by 10 strokes with the pump
    3. Fill little bowls under the burners with meth and set on fire.
    4. Shortly before the primer flames go out open both control knobs and regulate both burners to eeven flames
    5. After temperature of sterilization is reached close the right control knob.
    6. After sterilization is finished close the left control knob

    Regards
