    I have a Trangia No. 25 that used to be my Dad's and maybe even my Grandpa's:

    Here is my Trangia: (newly added frying pan and multi-disk and not with original strap)

    Logo on windshield:

    Any idea on the date from the fact these are riveted on...
    tarngia 007.JPG

    ...and that there is no gas conversion hole?

    The text on the burner lid says: DANGER: Never refill when hot.

    Hi Archie
    who taught you to use a brillo pad? whoever it was did a very good job because your trangia looks so clean.
    I've never seen that square panel that looks like it can be knocked out to accept a gas / liquid fuel burner connection before. My T27 does not have it and that was bought in about 1983 or 1984.
    best regards

    Hi Archie - nice Trangia.

    Have you had any troubles burning methylated spirits in the very cold (snow)?

    One time, I had to light it, by a negative temp, and I burned a little ball of cotton under the burner, to heat the meths.

    From memory it can get very chilly in Lincolnshire without snow!

    I would be a bad influence. A scourer is not allowed near any part of my Trangia! :twisted:

    It seem it is it, according to the Trangria web site FAQ :

    "10. I have an old Trangia set. How can I adapt the set in order to be able to use the gas burner?
    The easiest way to adapt an older set to the gas burner is to cut out a bigger hole among the small holes on the side of the lower windshield that is four holes wide and four holes high."

    Early 80's due to sticker, lack of hole for gas etc & simme ring. Hard to guage size on my tablet in bright light at mo but if biggest pan is more than 1.1L it's a 25K. I think biggest was 1.5 on 25 & 1.1 on 27.

    The disk is good for stopping th non-stick getting scratched on the fry-pan.

    Looks very cool Archie. I used to have one like that, but without the strainer and kettle. My frying pan was not non-stick so most of my fried egg was burnt to the bottom of the pan. I am a useless cook though. I think that mine was a 27. Where I live now it is very windy so Trangias don't work very well. I used gas stoves until recently, when I bought an Optimus stove, but I did cook a few meals on that Trangia and it was really good.

    I measured the capacity of the biggest pan in a jug and it measured 1.5L!
    does that mean it IS a 25k?

    Hi Archie,

    A 1.5 litre pan indicates that you have a T25 series. As you also have the (0.9 litre) kettle you have a T25K.

    I looked at my T27K over the weekend and in addition to your T25K having that 4x4 square of holes that is ready to be knocked out of you want to add a gas burner you also have the simmer / snuffer ring with swivelling lid that has a tag that protrudes over the edge so that it can be adjusted more easily. The brown bit of my simmer ring is just a plain circle. As mine dates from about 1983 or 84 (spring 1985 at the very latest) yours dates from slightly later. The article about trangia history in the stove reference library that states the following:

    You don't have the interlocking top and bottom windshield, so it looks like your T25K is from the mid 1980s.

    best regards
    John
