I am about to pop off to afghan very soon - Kandahar. Any tips for items to bring? Both comfort items and essentials? Any thing I really dont need on issued kit list? EG what ARE those C95 shorts about?? Am well impressed with new issue hot weather boots too so wont be buying any others. Laptop to bring or not? Ipod? DVDs? Or should I bring minimum stuff and buy stuff when Im there? Im going to Kandahar as an individual to a small unit, and will not be working with too many Brits, and have had bugger all in the way of advice from Unit, so any advice from those who have been there or ABOUT to go most welcome. If anyone has info (no OPSEC issues please) about Kandahar MNB then pls fell free to drop a reply eg whats the food like, facilities -gym equipt? accom? Oh and are you taking the anti malarials? Cheers.
