Parcels for FOB's

Discussion in 'Charities and Welfare' started by legs-o-lead, Aug 2, 2010.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Guys,

    I am in the early stages of thinking about getting some of my colleagues and friends to donate some stuff to send to troops in the front line. I want to send over things that the guys (and girls) can't normally get; things's that'll help with morale if nothing else.

    1. What sort of stuff would most be appreciated ?
    2. How do I logistically get the stuff over there ? Does BFPO screen all parcels for appropriate contents, and how do I know the gear would actually get to the FOB's rather than just get holed up at the airport ?

    If I can be sure things would actually get to Pvt T Atkins, then I would have more chance of getting the people here to chip in.
