An empty McDonalds BigMac carton, with several sachets of ketchup attached, sent to me from Maj Boothroyd who was still in Kuwait having to send his laundry north. My own fault for sending him a " WARDODGER, you'll be wearing your medal below the pocket for this tour" bluey, I suppose.

Well going back to '90/91 and GW1;

48 bars of highland toffee, tasted great, no fillings left in my head after that lot though! From me wee Great Aunt in the Highlands, God rest her soul.

Vodka with blue food dye in it in the standard mouthwash bottle! From my Mother, God rest her soul.

A porn mag, Men Only it were, even remember one of the models, pretty sure her name was Joanna Rutlidge, 1st name may be wrong but surname is defo correct, without doubt the finest gaping axe wound I have ever clapped me peepers on or was that because I been in the sand pit for 5 months! From my mate Martin, God rest his soul.

Sh!t I see a pattern developing, don't send me anything next deployment, you end up dead! :?

That'll be the bottle of 18 year-old Macallan then. Yum yum. And strangely the container was opened and then resealed by the BFPO chappies and delivered with a note of apology for the damage to the box.
