    Some photos of my M1950 dated 1982. Unfortunately spilled fuel has washed out the instruction labels and some paint has flaked off. Otherwise (except for the storage container, which I have never seen in Australia) all the bits and pieces are there. As commented by others, this stove really 1284076433-SMP_1982-1.jpg 1284076478-SMP_1982-2.jpg 1284076504-SMP_1982-3.jpg 1284076525-SMP_1982-4.jpg roars when full on.

    Yep, would also like to get container, but only ever seen photos. Do you know if this stove was issued to Aus troops in Vietnam?

    Nice stove. The M-1950 is a tough little stove. I think it was made from '51 to '87 from quite a few makers. Be sure to check the pip at the bottom of the pump tube. It's the only thing that separates you and a very nasty fire, since it keeps the fuel from coming out the pump! Other than that, these stoves will work under just about any condition and will continue to work for years to come.

    They were issued lots of US stuff, C-Rats, Ammo, Tentage, and Vehicles...
    Probably some stoves too, everybody had em!
    I wasn't much interested in stoves then, too busy ducking :lol:

    As for the cylindrical tins for these stoves, they sometimes pop up on local surplus store's websites and sometimes on ebay so you really have to search. Use words like m1950.

    Good luck and nice good stoves.

    G,,day i have been trying this but no luck so far.
    at least at a sensible price, also the size makes postage a bit dear.
    cheers kerry
