    (I made an OPSEC faux pas by putting too much info on the label and had to cover up the location...)

    Just use the BFPO number not the location/country some Post office staff are so thick they will try to charge the country rate insead of the BFPO rate if they see the name of a country on it.

    - *Sports Equipement (Footballs, baseballs, bats, soccer etc)
    - Books
    - Crossword puzzles

    - Lotramin AF or Tinactin for athletes foot.
    - Candy! (that doesn't melt)

    Porn is OK in the British Army and The RAF.
    But illegal to send by post (yeah right) so donít tell the PO staff what sort of mag you are sending. If they ask say fitness or martial arts or train spotting.

    Baby wipes (unscented), good hiking socks (not cotton), underwear (all sizes, I sent the boxer briefs cause they reduce chafing), the kids in Iraq and Afghanistan don't know what peppermint is. If you can find it "Off sunscreen with insect repellent, paperback books I sent a half dozen used ones). Find out what razors they are using and send some blades.

    This is the stuff they can't just walk over and buy at the store.

    baby wipes, gold's bond powder, tinactin/lotriman, starburst, bug juice, a few books, dip and smokes.

    Thats what I'm gonna be sending, I just need to know someone's address. Since Gezere already got something, does anyone know any other chaps over in Iraq or Afghanistan in need of a little moto?
