|Conservation/ Maintenance History|
Although the bottle passed the hydraulic test in 2012 the base was found to have extensive corrosion and was deemed not suitable for further use. The decision was taken to scrap the bottle after removing the valve block for spares. Retaining the bottle might lead to eventual use in or outside the museum so it was felt better to prevent any future risk and scrap.
