    I found this ad in an Australian paper from August 1940.
    I noticed it has an XN control cock.

    Perhaps Tilley were using up old stock.

    Bit of a tricky one to answer.
    The EX100 tank is the same as the PL tanks of the time so you could put an EX100 hood on a PL tank and get an XN EX100.
    The general consensus is that EX100 started in 1940 ,the control cocks went from XN to GF in 1940 and the detachable angled handle bolts was also 1940.
    I have found this and another ad from 1940 showing the EX100 with the XN control cock so it would go to the argument that XN to GF was earlier rather than later 1940.

    That's not right.
    Later rather than early 1940.
