1938 It was aimed at 'followers of open-air life, Cycling, Camping, Motoring, Boating etc.'

It was fitted with straps to enable fastening to a bike crossbar & the bag made of 'Stout waterproof material'.

Gotta love a Primmy!

The roar on cold January snow ridden mornings camping in Glencoe or the Cairngorms. Oh Yes|

Had mine since around 1975 :xmas-big-grin:

Used to see groups of cyclists in woods at the side of the Loch Lomond road during 1960s and early 70s - always stopped for a brew with wee fires and Primmys on the go. I wouldn't go anywhere near that road with a bike now.

Even with the weight penalty compared to other stoves, it remains my favourite, especially in winter. Simple effective engineering - the way it should be 8)

Nice! Used them in the scouts and have one in the loft that I haven't got up and running yet. Great little things.
