Some carrier bags to stow perfectly ironed shirts and trousers that you never wear and only present for kit inspections.

Couple of decent towels 'cos the NAAFI towels are expensive and dead fluffy for the first few washes and the fluff goes everywhere.

Cotton wool balls for bulling your shoes and boots. Kiwi black Parade Gloss polish is a good recommendation.

Try to get some large (larger than A4 size) re-sealable bags for your kit

Forget the cotton wool, get a silvet polishig cloth from the NAFFI they work a treat, and normal KIWI Black polish is just as good, plus an old toothbrush for the welts

a small scrubbing brush for your shirt collers and cap top

Personally I used KIWI boot polish. :wink:

Pedantic I know but I am waiting for the clock to tick round.....
