    I don't see any military connection to this item. But nice old blowlamp.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks Ade. Somebody told me they might have uses this to heat engines in the winter, to help start frozen motors... Sounds like a plausible answer. Though in my opinion it seems to be an item from WW1 instead of WW2.

    Blowlamps were used on the Russian Front for this task. But it sounds like a sales pitch, for what is here, a civvy blowlamp.

    Cheers, Ade.
