Flat Battery-Update!

Hi Guys, just tried something. I just plugged a starter onto the battery and the car started perfectly. After switching the car off, I tried starting it without the starter and nothing. Completely dead. I take it this means the battery has had it and will need replacing?
Thanks once agin for all your help. It is much appreciated.

Is this starter one of those booster battery thingies?

If it starts with that then your battery is flat, whether it is dead will depend on if the car restarts after being run for a while. Running the car will charge the battery.
