Over here is a little slide show of a wall at some in-theatre airbase covered with graffiti by soldiers waiting to go here or there. Some interesting stuff, some not so much. Worth a look.
Fascinating stuff. I remember seeing those while TDY there and transiting through. Too bad they didn't get any of my wall contributions.

Naturally, I had to put my own moniker up there, and many of my fellow recruits did as well.
Our DI's demanded to know who had written on the walls of the butts afterward (I'm sure they had no proof of anyone, but everyone does it). I got a nasty session in the pit after stepping forward. Ah well, it was worth it. My legs don't hurt anymore, the sweat's long since been washed off, but my name is still on that wall in the company of all those other Marines...

There are some graffiti on the walls of some POW cells at Beale AFB (back when Beale was home to an armored division). Some Germans had been sent there, and had proceeded to decorate accordingly. The cells are kind of exposed, as I recall. They have a roof, but rain and whatever can still blow in. Maybe they're routinely refurbished, but there's still graffiti on those walls.
Went on a tour of the dungeon that is part of the Tower of London. There's graffiti of a sort, though it's carved rather than applied as paint or graphite, and it's several hundred years old. Maybe refurbished periodically as well?
On the other hand, I recall reading that there's still a quantity of original graffiti on tombs suburban to some former Roman cities. Still legible, not refurbished.
