A&N CSL was the mark used by the Army & Navy Stores which was formed by enlisted men for enlisted officers and their families in 1871. The original Army & Navy store was located on Victoria Street in London as a cooperative society, thus CSL stood for Cooperative Society Limited.  In 1934 Army & Navy became a limited liability company and in 1973 the Army & Navy stores were purchased by the House of Fraser. The 3, 4 and 6 pint kettles were referred to as a Bachelor Kettles in old Army & Navy catalogs.

This charming kettle was imported from Sunbury-On-Thames, United Kingdom.
