With government property printed on each sheet.
Newspaper and vinegar
Oh we had that in school @Duke of York .....
We had Izal at school.
Dang. Read windows again.
As my dad used to say when telling us off for using too many sheets: you only need three sheets:
One up, one down, one shiner.
But he probably got that from being in the army.
Izal? You was lucky. We had old newspaper in the outside loo with the remains of dead pigeons for company.
The Army aren't called " Pongos " for nothing.
I deliberately left the punctuation out of the thread title by the way, just to see if there's a member of the grammar police who fancies a black eye.
Making that up, surely?!! Urgh!
I’ve never heard of Izal, what is it?
I thought it was windows ok?
I always assumed the purpose of Izal was to put you off using those particular facilities and encourage you to waste your own time when you got home. I never understood the "medicated" label either.
I expect we'll see a return to people doing that when the price those fecal regognition cameras that have been in the news recently comes down.
Dear God, woman!
Sandpaper doused in bleach.
Rumour has it once the Germans knew our soldiers were strong enough to wipe their backsides on it, the war was over.
Izal spelt backwards is almost 'Nazi' - a suspicious coincidence.
You can still buy it - as I type I'm looking at a roll I bought recently as a joke, and no, I'm not in the bog.
Government Departments used to print 'Government Property' on each sheet. DoE ancient monuments had it in their bogs until at least the early 1980s.
When you were a kid. It made great tracing paper.
It's the only stuff suitable for playing the comb and paper on the lav as well, so it isn't all grief. It's a waste of time trying to do that with what's left of the Andrex after the puppy has run off with most of the roll.
