    Very nice & a rare find. :clap: Nothing in the reference gallery - until now, as I'm moving this!

    A quick search using the site's google brought up this:
    https://classiccampstoves.com/threads/172

    A Comet catalogue from 1912. Looks like this is the big brother of the Comet 6 - the No:5.

    The tank after re-fiting, cleaning and planing. One third part of the capacity of the tank was under mud. Something simillar with vegetable oil was filled into the tank somewhen. Two corosion holes under the mud were found...

    Fascinating to see the pics of such an unusual stove dismantled.

    The No:6 has the same NRV arrangement - see here.

    What's the story with it being buried?

    I don't know history of this stove. Only, that it come to Lithuania from Latvia. I found it in the big antiquities market at one seller of millitary items from Latvia. Becouse stove was not military, he appreciated it no very much :lol: Are the No6 panels brass made? The panels of my No5 are brass-plated steel...
    And have the tank two small legs on the bottom side? I suspect, they are later fitted...

    Thank you, friends. It's nice for me to see the stove working, but most nice to share one's delight with you.
