First Outside Cylinder Cast

A group of project supporters travelled to Coupe Castings, Preston last night to witness the casting of the first of the two Outside Cylinders required for The Unknown Warrior.

Five tons of molten SG Iron was prepared for the casting, the final casting weight was expected to be around 2 1/2 tons.

The casting will now be left in the mould until the middle of next week to cool, before being broken out of the sand mould.
