Lamplight

The new mantles which I ordered from Tilley International (the woman on the phone was ever so nice) arrived today, so after a bit of fiddling about we fitted a new one to our lamp, and when through the lighting procedure. I think we're getting the hang of it, because on the second attempt, it worked. I must say, it is rather impressive, giving a good bright white light - perfectly good for reading by, and sufficient to see all of the kitchen - and not a little heat, which might be welcome on a chilly evening.

Now, I wonder if they still make Primus stoves....

Yes, they do. But if you want one I have about 3. Plus some army petrol cookers, coleman stoves and 3 tillys. Even better is my aladdin mantle lamp with the tall glass chimney. Almost as much light as a tilley but totally silent!!
