I know this has been done before, but not for a while and after searching, I'm sure an update wouldn't go a miss... Does anyone have any tips of good things to do prior to deployment (I'm TA if you haven't guessed). i.e. insurances, phone/internet, ways of keeping in contact with my family? If your going to say "porn".... then at least PM me decent links BTW, what type of kit should I buy? Do I really need a gucci pair of £100 dessi boots, assault vests etc. I'm RSigs and will attached to an RSigs sqn.
