Commercial Tommy's Solid Fuel Cooker & Tablet

Commercial Tommy's Solid Fuel Cooker & Tablet

Code: 10332

SOLD

A good example of the commercial personal cooker introduced in the inter-war period and beyond, this example made by 'Robert Blackie'. These are often erroneously believed to be Great War vintage, however they are easy to date owing to the reference to the Royal Air Force and Mount Everest Expedition. Therefore dating to post-1922, though it is believed they also saw extensive use later with various units. 

The design features a solidified fuel tablet with a pressed metal stand and lid to extinguish, the fuel tablet remains present inside the body of the tin. The label and graphics are in good little used condition.
