    Most out of date pat test ever?

    Most out of date pat test ever?-230311-1554-002-.jpg

    I know there's some discussion about whether stuff needs testing annually or not.... but the stage lantern this was attached to (a Strand Pat 60 ) hasn't been tested since........ 26th June 1958 That's got to be a record!

    And it was in the rig!
