    This is 'Monty' and one of my Favourite lamps. It's in superb nick, though I reckon the mantles are about done.
    This is one I take camping a lot. I've got to be careful with the globe though.....Hard to replace, but I managed to get a spare Coleman one that's near enough.

    Monty as a 'he' may well have this angular shaped look rather than round hips:thumbup:
    Never seen before, only knowing Thermos for mil spec lanterns.
    He's working well.

    @Johnny19

    Are you going to put some photos of this lantern in the Reference Gallery? It doesn’t appear to be that common.

    Cheers

    Tony

    Edit: I assume it would go under America/Other Brands, if you were up to placing it in the Gallery. Cheers again.

    Might do Tony, although I see there is the Thermos 8326 in there which is identical. If I do I will take a few more pics of it Cheers!

    That's very cool! I also have an old Ward's Western Field... But it's my father's old shotgun.

    Pump NRV too, reliant merely on an O-ring to seal, lacking the Coleman failsafe of a check valve + postive lock/seal scew.
