    The stove came in a corrugated cardboard box with a newer style label.
    See box details here- https://classiccampstoves.com/threads/australian-companion-later-version.45787/

    The instruction manual is a generic “COMPANION” Kerosene Pressure Stoves, Directions for use
    As listed here in the Reference library - https://classiccampstoves.com/threads/companion-kerosene-pressure-stove.45786/

    Because of the lack of branding on the components I believe this stove was constructed towards the end of kerosene stove production.

    The tank is stamped COMPANION STOVE with the COMPANION logo located above the pump.

    The tank filler cap only has COMPANION stamped in one side.

    The pressure bleed is round (13 mm dia) with no markings. As shown in the Directions for use.

    The legs are steel with the splayed feet. A series of serrations can be seen on each leg (Consistent with the later construction).

    The burner has no markings but a paper label is attached COMPANION STOVE trial burned and tested. It has the standard eight holes in the skirt.

    The Outer Cap has no markings but has a notch in the rim similar to other marked Companion caps.

    The Inner Cap is stamped COMPANION BRAND.

    The spirit cup has no markings.

    The trivet is steel and stamped COMPANION BRAND

    The leather pump cup assembly is a riveted construction. The rivet is brass.
    The assembly is not fixed and slides on the shaft allowing air entry on the up stroke. It is held on the shaft by a brass nut.

    The NRV is standard.

    Hi @ROBBO55 Nice stove, well presented and a good write-up.

    The knurled head air release valve fitted to your stove is rarely seen on British or Swedish stoves but I have seen one on a Primus before, and I have some in my spares box:

    Thanks gentlemen.

    George, a nice array of round bleed screws.
    They are found on several stove brands made in Australia. Darlton, Lanray, Metacel to name a few.
