Help with cooking burner

Hi all,

Is this cooking burner a captured British item?

Photo from a DAK veteran.

Cheers, Dave

Maybe, the Primus stove was well known worldwide.

Hello.

Unfortunately this cooking device could be anything. The original design was Swedish (primus, like said already) however many many companies made copies of them. Its a very generic design.

However whats strange is that from the photo it looks like a domestic model. Not a portable field model. It would have probably not been carried by somebody in a backpack but rather was used in a house or other fixed installation.

This particular model was fuelled with kerosene.

Its also almost certain that either this photo was pretend posing, or it was a very still day with no wind. The cooking device has no wind-protector fitted so would be almost impossible to light outside unless it was very still.
