    Heres something you dont see every day!This is a sheet metal Air raid shelter heater with a large oil burner that fits inside.I cant imagine many of these survived and it must have gone in the larger public shelters?Cant see it in Anderson myself?!!If anyone has any more info that would be great as i think these must be rather rare.

    See here for Registered design numbers:

    How to find a registered design or trade mark 1939-1991 | The National Archives

    Should be easy enough to get up and running again with the addition of a new wick. We could do with it here this morning!

    Cheers, Ade.
