    Another 1911, 'A' date code, Primus 100. This one has had a hard life as evidenced by the variety of little dings on the tank, the obviously more-than-once re-soldering of legs and the wear in the pump tube cap:

    It has also been retro-fitted at some date with one of the later No.1 burner adaptor risers:

    Operates very nicely, so a repair insert will be added to the inside of the pump cap to reinforce it whilst retaining the patina of wear, and it will serve as a very handy 'user' stove.

    Nicely done! Pleasure to see it back to work again, as it should be! All the little dings and repairs are a testament to a life well lived.
