    Nice !! +1 with Billyboy and he would know
    iirc he has a 1941 No.41 that and now your 1944 No.341 (the only '44 example I recall).
    Being rare stoves of WW2 vintage both are excellent additions to the gallery.
    thank you omc

    I have one 1944 too, looking exactly the same as far as I remember.
    It was on of my first stoves, got it from my father. The first time I tested it a small accident appeared. I didn't check the sealings, just filled it up and lit. When I pumped it up the NRV failed and burning alcohol was sprayed over my shoes.
    I didn't get burned but it gave me a reminder.
    Anyway a very nice stove produced during a short time

    That’s my top of the list stove to get! Awesome you have one. I’d trade just about any stove I have for one! There’s something about alcohol fueled pressure stoves that I love! Congrats.

    @Fernando Alicea

    You should use ethanol (ethyl alcohol). It might be called many things but the international chemical name is ethanol.

    Methanol could be used if you can’t get ethanol.

    Your product’s Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) will tell you what you’ve bought. It should be at least 95% ethanol.

    Cheers

    Tony
