Kaiser Wilhelm’s urinal found on sunken WWI ship

Maritime archaeologists have found a urinal used by Kaiser Wilhelm II on the wreck of the Udine, a light-cuirse which was sunk by the Royal Navy during WWI.

At the time the significance of the urinal went unnoticed until later research revealed that the urinal was part of a special bathroom laid on for the emperor’s convenience.

“Kaiser Wilhelm was on board the ship when it was launched in Kiel on December 11, 1902, and went on its maiden voyage,” explained Mr Oser, who added the team had been surprised by the identity of the urinal’s user.
