Battered old design stove

by Jo

I'd like to know a bit more about my first Trangia (one of several I have). I bought it second hand in the late 1980's. I have lost track of which burner it came with (I might have given the one that came with it away).
It's got a few scars - the worst of which is the imprint of a bic lighter in the side.... I managed to put the hot frying pan down on top of the lighter (in the dark) and then put the frying pan back on the cooker. Some minutes later the frying pan shot into the air, narrowly missing my head. It was a valuable lesson!
