    Default Ratel Tote - Cooker

    I have one of the above but missing the instructions other than the ones on the side of the container. I don't remember if they were multi-fuel or ran off diesel only.
    Anyone got more info for me?
    TIA

    IIRC they were made by Optimus in Sweden. Have Googled but cannot find the exact model.

    Pete, can you post a pic, I have a cooker called an" Eland brander". This is in a fairly heavy steel case and is multi-fuel (diesel or petrol). To change fuel type one installs the appropriate burner which is stamped with the fuel type on top of the burner.

    Hi Rick. The, probably locally attached, label reads "Bosveld Brander'. Exterior is Brown Earth colour. Can't post pics now as it's out on loan. Could you post pic/s of yours?

    Pic would really help as there are a few different ones in circulation. They are still issued by the SANDF to this day! Some types were "multifuel", some not. Always hated the petrol model as the seals used to perish. Now picture "pumping" this up to get pressure and lighting it in the dark, only to discover that this device is happily spraying petrol under pressure from every orifice. Can be very entertaining!!
