    I joined the forum back in March, I was trying to get a Monitor stove up and together. What with trying to get my house prepared for sale, family stuff and being obsessed with the pressure lamps(!), the stoves have taken a back seat.
    A week or two ago a guy turned up on my doorstep with a box, he said he’d found a couple of pressure lamps in a barn and he wanted me to have them, nice guy!
    Below is a pic of the two ‘lamps’ he brought me. So, I’ve decided to get my stove head on in the new year......

    So, the top photo is a Primus No.54, but what is the stove in the second photo?

    Thanks folks, Stevie

    Hi @BigStevie Your second stove is a British-made RM No.35 (2-pint collapsible stove fitted with a silent burner)

    RM No:35 Collapsible

    A very similar stove to this was the RM No.31, which was fitted with a roarer burner:

    RM 31 Collapsible

    Best Regards,
    Kerophile.

    @BigStevie, it'll have been replaced at some point in the past, the burner is a British design with the removeable centre piece allowing easy access for nipple replacement.

    The Primus No. 54 takes the standard Primus No. 5 stove silent burner (part No. 4138).

    Cheers

    @kerophile . The code is AA12, from the list I guess it’s 1936 and the 12 denotes the month?

    @Tony Press. I think it’ll get the correct burner......

    @Simes I’m catching up! I quite like the Burmos burner, perhaps it’ll go on to a British stove!

    Thanks all, Stevie

    @kerophile What sort of age is the RM35, any way of detecting?

    Hi Stevie, the numbers in this Primus coding does not relate to dating information. It is believed to relate to other Primus manufacturing data.

    Your RM No.35 likely dates from the 1950s.

    Best Regards,
    Kerophile.

    @kerophile Just slightly confused re the Primus dating. Does the AA12 code on the bottom of the tank denote 1936, just the numbers that are erroneous?

    @Simes Ah, temptation.........
