GUEST,Graham Bradshaw Folklore: Izal toilet paper (63* d) RE: Folklore: Izal toilet paper 25 May 10


This reminds me of a funny story.

In the 60s, I was friends with a lad who was the son of a multi-millionaire industrialist. They lived in a huge house, with swimming pool, and numerous cars in the drive which included a Roller and Aston Martin. We had all grown up with Izal and Bronco, but soft toilet tissue had recently become available - I came from an ordinary family but even we had soft paper!

A visit to the toilet at my friends place discovered they were still using the hard stuff. I thought this odd and questioned him about it. He replied, "Oh yes, the old man bought a job lot from the NAAFI cheap after the war, and we are banned from having the soft stuff until this is all used up!" Trouble was, they had about 50 years supply still left in their loft.

Interestingly, Cliff Richard bought the house some years later. Wonder if he inherited the toilet paper as well?!
