    This model is not particularly common, has round recess for the filler cap, not the eliptical, as usually seen on Burmos stoves. Odd arrangement for the non-return valve, unscrews from the bottom of the NRV. Still has its plastic pump cup. Spirit cup was brass plated steel, had a small hole in it, replaced with Brass, with the same markings as the original.

    Hi Ian, Interesting stove. I have only once seen an NRV with that arrangement. It came from a 1930s Juwel No.1. Have a look at the bottom of this thread for an image:

    Hi Kero

    I came by one of these stoves, sometime ago. I had to take the NRV out, very very grubby, once removed. Struggled like a prat to undo it, not realising that it had to be unscrewed from the bottom end ! I think you can guess the rest.

    Hello Ian

    That is certainly an interesting stove.
    All sorts to look at and ponder. The high tank sides with rounded shoulders - higher I think than other discus stoves.
    That non-return valve - thank goodness George remembered another like it.
    Also things like the pressed strengthening of the bottom of the tank.

    Ian - you keep turning up these interesting stoves. Well done!
