Trangia Timeline 

Many thanks to Malin Bergman & the good people at Trangia SE for supplying the Trangia timeline and allowing me to use it on this site.

The Trangia timeline is an excellent guide to help date your Trangia stoves, with dates staring from 1925 up to 2010, this is rare and invaluable information for any Trangia collector or enthusiast, the list of dates and production changes will not only help you identify the model and approximate age of your Trangia, it has useful information about "some" Trangia accessories too.
