Great bit of kit if used and maintained properly, lethal if not. Post war British army had a similar bit of kit usually dug into the ground on exercises that i witnessed.

Unmistakable sound and smell early in the morning.

Default hydro burner

I own one which we use time to time during our events. Until it starts gassing the petrol the flames arouse some respect.
