Facilities for the wireless operators

I saw that Phillips and Bride were sometimes (including in this sub-forum title) referred to as Wireless "Officers". But in fact, were they treated on par with the ship's other officers? For example, how did their accommodation compare? Did they eat with the ship's officers? What toilet facilities did they have for the voyage?
 
No they were not. They had their own mess room together with the postal clerks on C Deck (close to the aft staircase). If they used the same lavatory as the officers I do not know.
