Pissdale (12A07)

This pissdale was found off Rame Head, a pissdale was a urinal that was fitted to the side of a ship. The pissdale is made from lead sheet 4mm thick on the backplate and 6mm thick for the trough, leading to a lead waste pipe 36mm in diameter. The trough is formed from a sheet of lead with a rolled top and is neatly welded to the backplate. The pipe was more roughly attached at a later date using more weld material than necessary, overlying the original neat side welds. The backplate was secured to the side of the ship using 9 countersunk screws 6mm in diameter.
