Mystery Object No. 31


Recommended Posts

Does the user stand (or squat) on the right hand side? :schocked:

 

 

Although there are no written rules that I can find. I think squatting would have been the recommended way as you suggest.

 

Even if the use of the installation was for No.1 only, there were always issues with aiming & contamination of surrounding ground. A 1970's manual suggests that equipment such as this should incorporate the placing of shinny metal objects in the centre to encourage aiming. This apparently works very well.

Finally found a use for the SA80? Or is it NBC type feild latrine. The gravel as a soackaway.

 

 

Not NBC, yes the gravel is a soakaway, but not the other receptacle that materiel was retained. So the question is in what circumstances would this be used & why no soakaway for the other receptable?

As a source of fuel or fertiliser? :-o

 

 

Fuel in the sense it was burnt to dispose of it rather than to generate power. Not generally used as fertiliser but sometimes incorporated into roads. :-o

 

This system of seperation of solid & liquid was to satisfy religous/cultural requirements, as in MO No.29. The disadvantage of that was that it was made of wood which easily became contaminated & difficult to clean.

 

This device was made from large biscuit tins & the facilities were placed in rows spaced 3ft apart. They were covered by canvas soaked in kerosene or crude tar oil to keep the flies out.
