    I have had this Hurlock stove a while and it works. During Lockdown Nbr 6, here in Victoria I cleaned it up more but as the paint on the top of the fount was more or less gone I repainted the whole stove in a lighter green, because I couldn't go to the paint shop. The normal green is a darker military type green. In the end I rather like the lighter colour which is called mangrove.

    The stove was very heavily tinned and the fount is in good nick. I serviced the NRV, made a lead washer for the pump assembly and replaced the filler cap washer too.

    I can find no military markings so presume it is post WWII.

    Mangrove green repaint and general clean including NRV.

    The fount top shows the original heavy tinning of the steel fount.

    The thumb button on the pump was peened and loose so I brazed it; better than original.

    Fantastic easy access to the nipple and jet.

    A neat stove. I might later add the Instruction label; but maybe not too.

    Thanks Martin and John for the comments.

    John that is interesting about the guard as I had not even considered whether the others were steel or brass. It is, as it came, and the shield looks original and not home made. Dimensions are 68 mm tall and 50 mm (ID). The edges and cut outs all look uniform, possibly punched. Pictures attached for your information.

    @Sedgman Dimensions, form and fabrication match up so I’m sure it’s a Hurlock component.

    Here’s mine.

    A trick of the light in that last photo gave a bit of a brassy glint, but the magnet test confirmed it’s steel, not brass.

    Mine also has a brass windshield as in my post in "Bring out your Hurlocks" thread here.
    Mine looks just like Sedgman's - but nowhere near so clean! My stove had different pump knob - articulating brass knob, though.
    Regards
