    Thank you John for these crafty pictures; I especially like the lighting. With the 71L as a reference, I reckon the Lamb case to be of similar size as the Primus 70 container.
    The lamb must likely rate as the smallest paraffin pressure stove commercially available.
    And that of a very early vintage it appears; nifty brit engineering!
    Ross pointed out the appearance of these Lamb tins, thus the burner units had been marketed without a stand for some time.
    While I make do with an empty can for my spare model 70 when in use, I wonder in what set-up these burners had been used - and for what purpose - prior to the arrival of these tins?

    Regards, Mike

    It looks like the petrol version was sold on its own (without the later introduction of the box/pot rest) as a laboratory stove, Mike, "Specially designed for County Area schools" it says in this catalogue
