    Ok so how does it work, is there just one toilet that everyone uses...does it have a urinal?
    Are women happy to see guys pissing against a wall...?

    I've been to a couple of places with unisex toilets recently, the urinals were kind of behind a wall in both but not totally separate. I can't imagine the army did more than change the signs on whatever they had before, though.

    If it's single toilets then I think they should always be unisex; really pointless labelling them male or female in that case.

    Never heard so much PC bullS**t in my life! I imagine both sexes piddle against the wall to be equal- and alongside each other for total equality!
    Easier in the Middle East as assume both sides just squat over identical holes side by side in the floor ,under your robes?

    I'm sure our army has survived much worse things, Islander1. In Norway they have conscription and they make the men and women live together and I think even shower together, it was on the BBC.
