I know. I've seen a thread on this before, but my search skills are hopeless. I've been asked by a friend to provide some bits and bobs to go into shoe boxes for the regiment that her nephew is with, in Afghanistan. She's mentioned toothpaste, shaving stuff in a tube, shower gel, but I seemed to remember herbs and spices being requested too. Can someone either post a list, or point me at the old thread? Thank you. Search Biff.
