Think about a normal latrine then compare it with the one here, there is a significant difference in the way that it operates.

 

 

One side for No1's the other for No'2 :dunno:

Yes Lee, well done & very tastefully put. Game over.

 

It is a 1921 Hindu Latrine, religious/cultural customs required that No.1 & No.2 should be kept separate. The covering was just sacking to keep the flies out.

 

For those who have an interest in pit latrines there is a newsletter with a worldwide membership of 177 :shake:

well...I'll be blowed! bit off subject,

 

Well it has been unkindly said most of my posts will either be about Humbers or latrines. The object that caught my eye was is Manual of Military Hygiene 1921 24/Gen.No./6529. In many campaigns the British Army have lost more casualties to hygiene related disease than enemy action. But I find that these aspects of soldiering far more fascinating than guns & uniforms. :shake:

 

(I am not a subscriber to the pit latrine newsletter, I think 177 subscribers are enough!)

Be honest Jack, I've been trying to figure out if it is actually real! Trouble is even my US friends can't decide. :|

Clive,

 

With your healthy interest in to all things sanitary in the field, you may be interested in this link. It is possible that adaptors can be made to fix it to front or rear of a Humber.

I like the idea Richard but I think the Bedford might be to high - stand clear below.

I don't know how you got on with it Richard, but it looks as if the man has forgotten to remove his Long Johns.

 

I think it might be a bit inhibiting to use, unless you get up very early before the public start arriving. The ones that have a solid base surely could be free standing or is its purpose to hold men with pizza bellies up to 1-Ton?
