It is!  And extremely good value at www.fettlebox.co.uk £1.50 for pack of 2 - the slightly bigger o-ring for the Swedish milspec alcohol stove burner is also available.

Aye - far easier than trying to teach common sense.  Been off the curriculum for a long while now.

 HSE inspector John Crookes said  "Any fuel needed for the trip should have been taken in containers incorporating a safety cut-off valve and kept away from ignition sources"

Hi   

Could anyone point me in the direction of one of those bottles with a safety cut off valve.

Thanks
