    Hi, David's post about his similar find prompted me to dig out this stove and take some photos. This is an interesting late stove, being dated 1972, and intended for the UK Military and manufactured by SH&S in Birmingham, England.

    This is the only UK-made stove I have seen with a blowlamp-type pump arrangement; in that the whole assembly can be unscrewed and withdrawn from the tank.

    This particular example is in near-Mint condition and retains most of its original lacquer.

    Hi Kerophile

    I have two SH & S silent burners like the one you show with the pump which can be fully removed. They also have the military 'arrow' and date, but the dates are from World War II. I presume that this was military specification so that the pump could be easily repaired.

    Nobel Industries, dates from the 1920's - it is much cleaner than this now !

    Hi Trevor

    To be blunt no !

    Just recovering from a big family gathering here, and the garage is full of bottles, chairs crates etc !

    I keep saying that I will start to take proper photos of the stoves, and I definitely will . . . . . . . one day !

    Hi Keith

    I understand entirely!
    In this post, I said that I have two of the SH & S stoves (true), but without spending about an hour in my 'full-to-the-roof' garage, I just can't find the buggers.

    hello,

    it does look like a hybrid based on civilian / military parts....i suspect that if you could remove the oval soldered brass ID plate, you would find a standard civilian font stamp mark underneath. its not only parts over supply in the uk from ex wd contracts but the parts supply problems for some commodities continued well in to the 50's as the blown apart factories in major and minor manufacturing sectors took a long time to re establish and, in many cases never emerged again post war.
