First tour of Afghanistan

I have recently passed my Class 1 CMT course and going on my first tour in a few weeks. I wanted to know from other peoples experience what would be good things to take that are not issued. Anything that would make my life out there a little more easier! Thanks.

Whilst in Kabul, have a look for the Chinese restaurants of which there are three. One of them (I cant remember which one) isn't actually a restaurant it's a knocking shop. The girls are all Chinese (there were no Russkies when I was there) and all as rough as bears arses, but quite good fun. They all thought it was hilarious when we walked in and demanded a chinky take away.
