Sending parcels to soldiers in Afghanistan

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. My best mates just deployed over there and I said I would send stuff over.

    Anyone got any idea of what I should and should not send, how much in weight, price, and also what I can send as morale boosters.

    Thanks lads
  2. Parcels under 2kg are free.

    Don't send anything that will melt/not survive in 50C heat.

    Parcels take anything from 4 days to 8 weeks to get there depending on where you are, what is going on in theatre and the moonstate. It is random as hell.

    Have a poke around as there must be threads on this around somewhere...
  3. Ice lolly sticks, empty jonny wrappers and loads of melted chocolate. They'll love it, I know I did when I got it :|
  4. HHH

    HHH LE

  5. aaa batteries, shower gel, talc, and for some strange reason hand towels.

    Although the parcel was sent to an RMP bod
