Came back from a lunchtime drinking session, and we all make a bee line for the heads. Last in the line was a REME Lt Col, who, on seeing there was no spare urinal/loo, just pee'd in a wash basin. When challenged that this was conduct unbecoming of an officer, he just responded that there were only two types of army officer, those that pee'd in wash basins and those that lied about it...

I fitted one of these when I built our new house: https://shataf.co.uk/
Came across those in India, and thought what a good idea. Then thought, middle of winter, first thing in the morning, have a dump, use said gadget and get hit up the arse by a spray of icy water.
No, thanks

Peeing on one's feet is apparently a good way to ward off lots of potential infections, as any squaddy will tell you.

Peeing on one's feet ...
... also allows your doctor to make a quick assessment of potential high blood-sugar levels, by glancing at your shoes!

Thankfully this doesn't happen, as it's fed from a thermostatic mixer valve, so delivers warm water at the temperature you select. The trick is to run the hot tap on the wash basin first, so there's hot water at the mixer valve, and then it runs warm when you press the trigger. Still need to direct the first couple of seconds of flow down the pan, but it runs warm pretty quickly.

When dealing with any kind of automated toilet, it is important to read the instructions. I've been to Japan, ask me how I know!

You have to ask, was the stuff bioderegradable ?
It was often referred to as the only Government white paper worth a sh*te.

One should only use 3 sheets, 1 up, 1 down, and 1 for a polish.

Wasn't the compo ration idea to fold the sheet in four, tear off the corner and retain, poke finger through the hole in the sheet and use finger as scoop, fold used paper around finger and withdraw to wipe finger, take retained torn off corner and use to clean nail

In our house the roll in No 2 bathroom is right over the hot air outlet. If we put the paper in the holder end out the end flaps around when the heating comes on, the the dog sees it and grabs the end, then runs out of the bathroom to play with it.

We mount it loose end in.

At school sixty years ago the bogs had wooden seats with weights on the back so they were up unless you were sitting on them. Sensible arrangement. I do remember hating the Toilet paper though. In our house the bogs were in the shower and changing room block. No direct access from indoors.

any gents on here carry spare sheets of bog roll about their person?
Normally carry a roll in my rucksack when out for lengthy strolls in the countryside hereabouts so as not to waste a good handkerchief in an emergency!

Toilet paper? Bit posh! When I was a youngster with only an outdoor scheissebox down behind the woodheap, last weekend's newspaper hanging behind the door on a nail provided both the study material during the main event, and the means of cleaning up when all operations were completed.

For the record in these affluent times, it is my contention that the loose end must be away from the wall. Herself holds to the contrary opinion. Accordingly, she has her toilet with her preferred option; I have mine down the back which naturally follows my standard - and logical - SOPs in this matter.

Then there are the various dispensing machines one finds in public toilets, caravan parks, hotels, motels and the like. No standardisation whatsoever! This is one the things the UN should take up instead of wasting time and money on other futile pursuits!

My father told me that he was instructed in the Army, "Three sheets - one to scrape, one to wipe, and one to bung in the 'ole."

We were surveying a disused gold mine in Belize in the 70s with the idea of using it as a dispersal area and I came across a classic wooden outside loo. I had a wooden thunderbox and on the wall was a loop of string with sheets of newspaper threaded through.

They were twenty year old Daily Mirrors.

I arrived at a family reunion a few years ago with a copy of the Telegraph for erudite perusal and a copy of the Guardian in case the number of people present overwhelmed the lavatory supplies...

I normally carry a pack or two of of paper hankies with me. I believe that's what they use in the ration packs these days as well.

My late brother-in-law always purchased large gents handkerchiefs which, in the event of an al fresco emergency crap, he tore in half, retaining the other half just in case he hadn't completed the task! (or needed to blow his nose).
