Provenance

Made in West Germany we are guessing that this stove is from the 1950's or 60's. It runs on methylated spirit which is gravity fed from the raised tank. Our old pal,Dave(Heavy)Whalley got it from somewhere! and donated it. Dave is ex RAF Mountain Rescue and gets all kinds of things from all kinds of places. The stove is in good condition and it works.
