    I seem to remember the number four being trouble to lift, by half a dozen tired as newts re-enactors.

    The war-time Number 2 Cooker has a detachable fuel tank rather than the pull pattern.

    The later pattern appears in the 1945 manual but quite if they saw any war-time service is questionable.

    you are quit correct in that the wartime No 2 did have an external fuel tank. but the one with the internal tank did a peer very late 45 to see it used in wartime i can't say but is basically the same unit apart from the tank being on the inside. the mane thing with them is to keep the jets clean and don't let the washer dry out . and to never fill when hot ( i have seen a few cooks doing this believe me they go up fast they are not known as Tommy cookers for nothing) but on the hole if you look after them they are a grate bit of kit and work well .

    They look like the food containers used by Civil Defence and School Dinner transporters to take meals/food from central kitchen to remote schools etc
