I believe it is for the daily event that those of us who are in good health carry out every day.

In other words Bob, you would not eat out of it! ;)

 

Clive probably has the stock number for it on one of his manuals on the subject .......

Its tempting to think that. The most eligible would be Latrines, buckets, large VAOS Section J1/1012 A1878 or A8874

 

There is no illustration in my 1941 VAOS. But in the 1946 VAOS the part number is not identified although the bucket illustrated is narrower, there is a carrying handle loop at the top. But only one handle at the side, this is not for carrying but to aid with tipping or hurling out the contents more effectively.

 

Sorry to disappoint the latrine avids but I suspect this more for coal & such like.

Chaps.

I would add my pennysworth that it is a coal bucket too. If it was a "Sip pot" (which I think is the correct technical term), the galvanisation would have probably suffered from urea corrosion. Happy to be proved wrong.
