Does anyone happen to know what colour the oxygen and nitrous oxide cylinders used for anaesthesia were, please.

Thanks in advance,

Is this any use?

In the Alastair Sim film Green for Danger. I remember that the oxygen cylinder was black and the carbon dioxide cylinder was green.

I don't know how long the colour codes ahave been in use.

 I Think

Oxygen cylinders were black, with a white collar 

Nitrous oxide cylinders were blue

Entonox (50% Nitrous Oxide 50% Oxygen )were blue with a white collar
