It is the same as the NHS card, just check the reverse.
NHS card and EHIC are not the same; one's a little card saying EHIC on it, the other's a piece of paper with your name, address, NHS number and doctor's details on it.

Bravo_Zulu, I stand corrected, I just saw NHS on one side of mine and EHIC details on the other. Made an incorrect assumption.

In my experience The Army dont automatically do anything, there is normally a long period of shoulder sloping and not my job attitude to be exposed to before you'll realise that its down to you to organise it yourself.

ADMIN is not a dirty word!! :wink:

A couple of large packets of paracetamol, you wont be allowed to buy it at the naafi.

Compound blister plasters, lots & lots!

A crappy old toothbrush for polishing between the tread of your best boots.

Yellow Dusters, about 4.

iPod, book and other entertainment. But wouldn't advise taking a laptop till after week 7.

Babywipes, extremely useful for cleaning mess tins and removing cam cream on exercise.

You only need to take two of these wash items: 2x Soap Dish & Soap, 2x Razors, 2x Razor blades, 2x Toothpaste, 2x Toothbrush, 2xShaving gel or whatever lassies use.

Flashwipes are pretty awesome, id get a pack cheap from Asda; good for the bathroom, dusting down sides, cleaning boots etc.

Dont buy parade gloss polish, its crap.

Hope this helps, good luck!

In response to the parade gloss, the Kiwi polish is recomended in my kit list and is only 0.95p on RVOPS :) Also looks like a good Boot cleaning kit on there for 7.50. Will be getting a few of my bits from there, maglite torch etc.
 
#19
If its that webtex boot kit, its a pile o' shite and we were issued it when we started. Its good for taking on exercise with you though.
