    Primus 51 with a burner marked UR.
    In its galvanised case / windshield.
    Fired up ok after a new set of gaskets but was heavily coked up hence the unusual polish up from me. Lots of small usage dents etc but it’s a nice stove steady and so far reliable.

    Hi @nmp Very smart stove and storage/shelter box. Have a look through this thread on similar enclosures:

    Biscuit Tin Adaptations

    You mention the date coding on the burner. Does the coding on the stove tank match?

    Best Regards,
    Kerophile.

    Hi nmp, I don’t know. i would be tempted to take the U (1930) if the tank has W for 1932. Sometimes the tank and burner share the same manufacturing date, or within a year or so.

    Best Regards,
    Kerophile.
