    This great find is from Villiers, more famous for their motorbikes and engines than for the manufacture of stoves. The box and a label on the windshield are marked Patent Applied For, but Simon has investigated the existence of a patent with no luck. The stove is in working condition and the right hand burner is actually alight in the pictures, having just boiled the water for our tea! The stove features a fold-out windshield, an upper warming tray and an external pump and folds up into the neat integral carry-case.

    I did some work on one of those and my write-up HERE may be useful.

    Thanks John eagerly awaiting its arrival it does look fairly complete so may be close to working condition was a hard choice to bid on it or the campkook 88 but I believe this one was in better condition now im waiting for more of these to be discovered my search for a 111 continues this was just a slight sidetrack

    Map of Villiers factory showing stove dept. I'm guessing WWII probably ended production of them as many firms had to make wartime stuff even here in nz.
    16 acre factory so stove dept. would have been a large area.
