    As I've not been able to get the March competition up in a timely manner this month I'm going to make it the same theme as last month so it's easy for as many members as possible to get something entered. I'm also going to let it run for an extra week.

    Open season! Well nearly. Any stove, any condition, working or not. Must be paraffin/kero or petrol/gas fuel. No alcohol stoves or gassies! Also no full-on kitchen 'cookers' not designed to be portable. Not clear? I'll shout up if I see one!

    This gives you the opportunity to enter a classic that may be beyond repair or missing impossible to find vital parts or your fettling skills may not be up to fixing or simply one you don't want to light!

    Post your nomination as a reply to this post.

    The rules.
    • Stove must feature in the Stove Reference Gallery (SRG) with a link posted in the entry. So now's the time to get those stoves photographed & posted! If it's been listed for years already that is ok too.
    • Maximum of 2 pictures in the entry. The pictures must show the stove in it's entirety. More pictures can of course be shown in the linked SRG entry - as many as you want!
    • Previous winning entries are excluded.
    • Stove must be presently owned by the member.
    • One entry per member.
    This nominations post will be open until midnight GMT on 7 April when the post will be closed & the qualifying stoves placed in a blind poll for members to vote for. The poll will remain open for 1 week. Most votes is the winner.

    The winner will get a SotM Winner notation on their posts & profile & a £10 voucher code from The Fettlebox. The winning stove will also be entered into the Stove of the Year vote the following January.

    Good luck & have fun

    I’ve chosen my Monitor Major, featured in the Stove Reference Gallery HERE.

    Its appeal to me is the effectiveness of the design; the existence of a patent and drawings and that it became the ‘Choice of Expeditions’.

    The March StoM contest inspired me for a quick fettle of a stove I had lying around just as a future donor stove for parts.

    After the fettle I decided this Phoebus N° 5 - late 1930’s is a keeper.

    Hope I'm not in breach of the rules with my Coleman/Jolp. It's certainly portable and more of a cabin stove than a cooker.
    Link Jolp/Coleman '372'.
