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. Hi,
    Hope someone out there can give me some advice, I'm due to deploy next month on Op Telic 10 and have just collected my comfort box. Any essentials that anyone recommends taking? I'm deployed for 7 months.
    Thanks
    :wave:
     
  2. Thanks for that, any ideas what to put in comfort box though?
     
  3. Have looked at that website, looks good thanks, worth bearing in mind. Any other suggestions?
    :?:
     
  4. A laptop and a USB DTT stick and an aerial, or an iDTV, or ordinary TV and Freeview box....
     
  5. Oops, posted my reply before I saw your second reply!
     
  6. Welcome to ARRSE. This has been covered many times and some research in older threads will answer all your questions.

    Go to "Forums" (sic) and use "Search" for "comfort" or "deploy".

    Don't take anything that doesn't like sand!

  7. My suggestions are books, music, laptop (if held), tracksuit, duvet set (saves using sleeping bag) fip-flops, gym stuff, towel large x 2, gown dressing- soldiers for the use of, escape and evasion kit (civvies- you may get a run to Kuwait if you're lucky) etc. It depends on where you will be based and what you will be doing. Things like tv and boogie box can be bought very cheaply over there so dont waste space with them. Remember, if you take it and dont use it you have wasted nothing. Make sure you have people at home sending you your fave mags and a few dvd's etc. Dont buy things like leatherman etc in the UK as the yanks sell them very cheaply too.
     
  8. Cheers for that will have a look now
    :D
     
  9. Thanks for that 762baynet, off to assign the wife to start packing for me
    :D
     
  10. Porn, porn, porn and.... er.... PORN!

    and dont forget PORN!
     
  12. Agreed, but don't let the RAF plod find it (or lend it to any of the LECs either!).
     
  13. Take one gay porn that's easily findable by the snowdrops, they'll keep it for 'evidence' before sharing it with their RAF PTI brownstar special friend and probably want your phone number leaving the proper stash unmolested!
     
  14. Cheap wellington boots (no I am not taking the p1ss, it gets muddy), loads of cheapy shower gel - the naffi is a rip off for that sort of thing, bedding, dvds, books, laptop (take it with you on the plane), flip flops etc
