Re: Hazard creation

That story is in one of Spike Milligan's war biography's, "Adolf Hitler: My part in his down fall"

They had just arrived in Algiers and were stationed in the secret "Camp X" if I recall, and the Latrine Orderly, named as one Gunner Liddle in the books, if I recall correctly, did not have any quick lime so used a mixture of petrol and diesel. Some time later a Sargent Major, attending to his ablutions drops a match down the pit after lighting his pipe and suffers second degree burns on his 'parts'.

A sort of British loss of face. He was our last casualty before we actually went into action. Next time it would be for real. (p. 146)
