first tour...

#1
Passed out of Medic training just 5 months ago, and havn't done a whisper of Medical work since. I'm deployed to Iraq in two weeks, I understand i'm going to have a highly boring couple of months out there, but is there anything i should do some groundwork on? What extra things should i take with me? What's allowed? Any insight would be really appreciated.

Maybe the issue field dressings, quick clot etc would be better? It's an op tour he's going on, not a fcuking 'make n mend' drive.

They are also great for cycling, swimming, climbing and playing tennis, but I doubt he will have time.

Possibly the silliest bit of advice ever offered on arrse. As Messer Alpa says, why not just use a dressing instead of having to raid jam rag bins up and down the country prior to deployment.

If I'd been shot and some clown was shoving a tampon in me rather than the field dressings generously given I'd burst out laughing and ask him what he was doing.
