I finally got round to reading this entire thread and I will be getting you a parcel or two of fun together ready for when you have settled again Rob. We can't [mores the pity] do anything about keeping you all safe, but apparently we are pretty good at keeping you clean and smelling sweet :D

Stay safe, all of you, and keep us updated. (y)

If anyone's thinking of replacing their 77mm UV filters, please sens us the old ones - even if they're a little bit scuffed...
We go through them at a great rate of knots here and there are three photogrpahers vying for the pitiful few that get sent out from Land Command and Uxbridge...

Also if anyone has a 58mm Hoya or Nikon UV filter lying around unloved and unwanted...likewise...my 50mm f/1.4 actually has dust on it!!!

Just what's been mentioned previously...
I think I'll have enough soap and assorted toiletries to keep me smelling sweet for a decade...
Books, magazines etc always good - duplicates will be farmed-out to the lads in the FOBs where - and I cannot emphasise this enough - conditions can be like the bloody trenches, especially in Winter...
I think someone's sorting me out some sensor swabs and Eclipse fluid - seriously: all donations gratefully recieved...and thanks again...

A crate* of DVDs on their way - along with a few other things.

Did I see somewhere, possibly this thread, that packs of shreddies are welcome over there? Anyhows... you're getting some.

Because I want to use it again when I get back to Germany without having to re-wire it again...lol
I also have two other appliances here with German plugs...not all in use at the same time - coffee grinder (I now have the one I brought with me - though it was lost, but it turned up in my spares box...lol) and espresso-maker for those hard-to-wake-up mornings...
What you should have done was.. get someone from Germany to send you a german 4 way extension then stick a uk plug on the extension. that way all you stuff can plug in at same time...

been there done that :)

6 or 7 mags posted to Rob this morning (in 3 envelopes).
Had a pantomine in the PO. Initially the Teller tried to say it was not free postage. Got that sorted out then got a moan about the customs declaration sticker being on the rhs of the envelope when it should be on the left.

Lots of old copies of PP - four bags of coffee, 10 bars of soap, six packs of wet-wipes, lots of DVDs and e-books...dried prunes and apricots and some walnut bits (they got a bit hammered in transit by the look of it...
Also lots of tampons - going to the medics, I think...lol

So thanks Steve and Robyn and 'other person with no return address'...
Please include a note saying who it's from so I can confirm reciept and give thanks as appropriate...
