    Don't know much about this baby - it came to me from Australia as a box of bits, sans pan supports.
    As it looked like an M1942 tank I fitted a set of pot supports from a 'parts' Coleman M1942 I had to hand. The pot supports fit like they were meant to. Hard to tell what this stoves origins are as that info is usually on the hub of the pot supports.

    Hi Ian - in a link posted about another US milspec stove this variant of the M1942 stove was shown. The info was that this was the hard-to-find original model - the majority having been modded or superceded by the one with the more conventional control knob.
