I've just purchased one off Ebay too!!! It arrived today and runs lovely (apart from the usual spitting of water at the start). Yours does seem to be missing the valve for the whistLe or is it just the angle of the photo??

I now have the Junior, Standard and Major and looking for the Minor to complete - see you on the Ebay war ground

I agree, it does look as if the whistle handle is missing.

Nice one Mick.  You must have an eye on ebay all the time to get BINs like that.

Unfortunatly not an original burner and no funnel, but I shall keep my eye out for an original burner - not fused about the funnel tbh.
