    This Coleman 404 'Bushmaster' stove is apparently Australian made based on a Canadian Coleman. According to the T.G. Marsh pages there are two minor variations. The CCS post #147804 shows the other one with the thinner walls on the sides. My stove has a homemade grill and is missing the original lid and side flaps. However it works very well and has been restored.

    That's actually a nice grill on your nice 404. You don't have to worry too much about setting a small pot on the grill and having to straddle a rod or two.

    Yeah, there was a Canadian license issued to the manufacturer in Australia. The appliances were actually made in Australia, which still amazes me. Not a lot was made there but enough that some of it has survived, like this one:

    Coleman Pioneer

    The factory that made the Coleman products was Austramax, who made the 249 Scout lantern, and the 303 Jubilee stove, as well as a few other Primus products.
