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. In the process of putting together a little first aid kit and stuck for ideas!Any tips on what you throw in?

    So far...First field dressings
    Blister pack

    Not a long list admittedly!

    Cheers for any help
  2. Zinc oxide stuff, ibuprofen (lots of), Germolene, E45 (if you don't like having a nice scabby crotch from a nice long tab), pins for removing splinters, vaseline, antihistamine tabs, paracetamol, scissors, imodium (or cheap brand of the like), tweezers.

    Now i've actually written the post i've found the wiki article on it: CLICKY
  3. these little waterproof plastic boxes are great for a first aid kit in the smaller sizes. They do mess tin sized ones too for your webbing.

  4. what kind of wound do you put that big cake on?
