    Now come on Henry. You know that you have got to come as there is fettling to be done. The 111s need you.
    Fuel up the disco, chuck your tent gasebo, grub and tool box in, and we will see you there.
    Oh and dont forget the tilleymus.

    Hi
    It had two globes and ran on alcohol.
    Wolves usually howl at it.

    Dunno - a pair of some sort of Dutch ovens IIRC - but they each had a big crack in them, tho'...

    I'm on the way....
    It's a lamp not a stove if that's any help.

    [hint]Nick(?)had one running quite happily a couple of years back.[/hint]

    So what's everyone going to be displaying at Newark? I've thought about it and after the recent Great English Stove Shoot, I'm a bit English stoved out, and the Swedes always have a good showing. So apart from some 111 family stoves for the record attempt I've decided on a display of non-English and non-Swedish stoves. Anyone else developing a theme?

    I'll also be bringing along the ugliest stove I own (design, not condition). Anyone up for an ugly stove competition?

    Cheers,

    Graham.

    If you bring it to Newark someone may be able to sort its problems out so that it need not be condemned and you might end up with a serviceable stove.
