    Hi @Fire3 Welcome to CCS.

    Spares availability for Military No.12 cookers is a problem.

    You can generally rely on Generic Optimus-type parts for the burner but other parts for the stove only rarely appear on Ebay.

    Tools of Coventry (ToC) the Manufacturer, flirted for a time with supplying spares to the open market (at a price!) but recently those who have tried that route have been disappointed.

    Do you want a grille in order to use the stove, or to complete
    a display model? If for use, I would say make a replacement and keep an eye open for an original;

    1997 British Army No.12



    Best Regards,

    Here are some prices quoted for some ToC spare parts in 2017:

    Many thanks for the reply.

    Im going to use it so hope to find a useable grille, currently it appears to have a grille from a No. 2 Army cooker instead of the correct part.
