    I'm clearing out a shed and have found a repair kit of some kind if it is of use to anyone? It is an aluminium container with two smaller aluminium containers and a spanner. In the smaller containers there are some brass fittings, one has a spring and there's a gasket.

    :-k Hmmm. The only thing that I can think of that would be marked Bialaddin 1954 would be one of those US Milspec stoves, equivalent of the Coleman 530 (if memory serves). Having said that, they have their service kit hidden down the pump plunger tube. A photograph would help.

    I have asked whether it could have been from a stove and my dad did get one from the army and navy stores way back when. The only thing still in the garage that it could have been for is an old blow torch.

    Yes, the fourth image shows parts for a Bialaddin U.S. Milspec stove. Willis & Bates had a contract for these in 1954 only. Have a look at the gallery over at Classic Camp Stoves...

    I'm not much of a stovie (or even a lampie :oops: ) these days, but I've never seen those spares containers before and they'd complete one of my Bialaddin Milspecs. Also the paperwork. Depends how much you want for them, I suppose. Whereabouts in God's Own County are you?

    @Jim Welford

    I agree with David they are parts for a M1950 Milspec stove but I've never seen the canisters before.
    I could use a spanner.

    Thanks, @Jim Welford - I identify the parts for you, ask for them first and you prefer to send them to someone else, all the way to Australia, when I live in the County next to you - that's just great. Not... :roll:

    @David Shouksmith

    G'day David, Sorry for gazumping you, I did not mean to. I misunderstood your interest in the parts.

    @Jim Welford

    Jim, please send the parts to David as first offer.

    No problem Martin - I probably should have been more explicit in my request. I've PM'd you.

    :-k It just seems a bit daft for @Jim Welford to send it all halfway around the world when you want the spanner only, and have you send the rest back to me in the UK, especially when I'm so close to where the stuff is now. It would make more sense if it came to me in the first place and I send the spanner on to you. But I'm sure it'll all work out in the end - I hope so, anyway... [-o< :)

    Right, I'll get it in the post to you this weekend. David my original response was to you, all sorted now (I think) .... but you'll need to PM me your address.
