theres no point in me writing everything out, because most of the shit on my list i didnt even need anyway, you'll get like £120 on the first week, and the NAAFI shop will sell everything on that list.

Make sure you have your passport photos, bank info, driving license, passport, etc. don't forget your undies aswell :p

This is from the green book which you should have got at selection. Some may say that you dont need some of the above things but you wont know that until you get there, so best to get them. Look around for the cheapest cost, that way it keeps the price down but it does add up. :( Anyway, I hope this helps you & good luck with basic. My son goes to afc 7th sept. :D

Do you reckon it's important to take an ironing board with you? I'm coming from Ireland and this kind of thing may seem a little cumbersome to be lugging around! Can this wait until I get there?

sidefx,

You will have to bring your own ironing board, if you do not have a lot of room in your bags to carry them, Ryan Air/Easy Jet will let you tape the ironing board to one of the wings free of charge (sellotape at your own expense).

From what I understand, there are spare ironing boards at camp; however, it's supposed to be a bit of an @rrse using them, as they have to be shared between the whole troop.

Is it on the list? If it is then take it. I had to lug mine from one end of the country to the other, why because it was on the list.

Simple,so simple...mutters in corner

hand washing powder.
I dont have hand washing powder :? . Where would I get some :?

I have some soap, will that do? - will I need to get some hand washing powder when I get there?
Funny you! The soap is not for your hands but for your clothes. To make this clear... It is a more gentle washing powder which you use to wash your clothes by hand if you cant use the washing machines. Our serg told us to include this on 'the list'. Hand soap would be great to keep your hands super soft lol. :D
