    having the angled rods look rather than the other 1961 lamps shown
    here with straight rods but stamped X246 A. Some features of the precedent
    model 246 remained as it has a pressure indicator and a control knob which can not
    be pulled off but screwed off anticlockwise. Fettling was easy, and it's working well.

    C'est tres jolie mais les Allumetres se trouve un petit peu "pres de" n'est-ce-pas?

    @David Shouksmith Those were my thoughts as well, looking at
    Carlssons X246 A Guardsman style lamp of December 1961.
    It's a Tilley confusion:doh:

    On the other end of the 246A production I just found a one dated October 1965.
    The 246B was meant to have started late `64. :-k

    ... and in the Reference Gallery, there is an X246B dated 7/65 demonstrating the overlap of production dates for X246A and X246B:

    1965 - X246B with shade
