Very nice stove.
I presume it is NOS.
It is very interesting to see it described as 'Steriliser, Instrument' - for the Medical Corps?
It certainly looks NOS, Trevor, probably only test fired using a blow torch ?
Medical Corp ?
My monitor's dated 1956 & has broad arrow marking. It roars like a good 'un despite the small jet size. Unfired when I got mine, just had to replace brittle filler washer, replaced the pump pip for good luck. It'll be around long after I'm not. Good stove even if not Swedish....
Hi, a very large number of the 2-pint Monitor stoves came on the UK market as NOS in the mid-late 1990s when the ex-NATO strategic forward stores were sold off when RAF/Army Burtonwood, near Warrington was closed and decommissioned.
Many of these stoves were without legs as they were intended for use in Sterilizer units.
I have both a 2 pint stove, and the gallon capacity No.78 which I believe came from this dispersal.
Thanks for that, Kerophile; you rang a few bells there. Burtonwood... we'll never see a disposal like that ever again.
