    Found this at the local salvation army shop "Fretex" in Drammen, Norway today. I thought maybe that box could contain something interesting, but it looked somewhat bulky...

    Someone had managed to stuff a NIB french gas burner in the kettle, lose the plastic bag from the spirit burner and just store it again!

    And my intention is to keep it unfired! IMG_20190521_191700.jpg IMG_20190521_191809.jpg

    Checked today - the burner has the "Norway-lid" and as I've never seen a Norway-burner in the yellow plastic bag, I suspect they were sent to Norway without re-packing the burner in the bag. IMG_20190525_153146.jpg

    Every Trangia burner I have seen in Norway, has been in the yellow plastic bag. I have two of them, the first one from a 27 in 1990, and the second one as a spare one or two year later. It is strange there are no yellow plastic bag with your as new Trangia.

    I have a couple of "as new" bags in used Trangias so it should be easy to complete - I use to pack used burners in ziplock freezing bags:)

    The most important is to not store the brass in contact with the aluminium, the aluminium can be very ugly (like the key of my Svea 123)
