My fav sketch of all time!

A few years back that was exactly how I used to heat my G/H down the allotment. Basically using T lights and any old candles that came to hand.
Even when the candles burn out the pots retain the heat for sometime.

To quote Del's uncle Albert,

"During the 1939-1945 conflict with Germany".  

We used this method of heating in our 'Air raid shelter'
