Shiny Bog Roll

#1
Okay, who recalls the shiny beige bog roll found in all ORs ablutions in the 70s? It shared similar properties to tracing paper and whilst it was an acceptable substitute for cigarette papers, it tore your ring to shreds 8O and had a tendency to smeary the schmeary rather than wipe it away, but WTF was printed on every sheet? Was it Government Property?

Yup, remember it well. Pretty sure it was "Government Property". Also commonly found in hospitals those days, and the non-govt version in colleges. My nextdoor neighbours even bought Bronco to have in their home.

Similar to the "Now wash your hands" slogan on school bog paper.

Didn't stop the Toms pinching it for excercises though did it?

Owing to shortage of paper,please use both sides.

When wrapped around a comb it made a fantastic imromptu musical instrument.

I still use bum fodder (ZAL is still available) but I haven't needed a comb in a long time.

Still available today, but god knows who buys it.

We grew up using that kind of bog roll. I think my Grandad pinched it from the showers at the Pit head. (Young uns; google Colliery).

I wish my Grandparents were alive to see;

a) recycled bog paper
b) that quilted bog roll

TBH my Gran would be so impressed she'd probably use the quilted stuff as a cheaper version of Anaglypta. (Young uns; google wallpaper).

They'll be using duvets next in basic training.... for sleeping in as well.

Whilst I was undergoing military collective training some 32 years ago I saw it used as cigarette paper, guys would shave their blankets put the shavings in with threads of tobacco they had left from last weeks roll-ups, seal them with toothpaste and smoke them whilst holding them between the prongs of a fork.

Now THATS desperation!!

I've raided a few ashtrays in my time but that takes the biscuit!!

Gideon Bibles, the wee tiny ones, were popular in prison for rolling a fa cigarette.

Apparently...
