A message from the pointy end

Some feedback for parcel posters -

If you would like a reply from the person who received your parcel please enclose a self-addressed envelope. Spare envelopes would be good, too.

That way it is easy for the member to write a thank you and a hello, pop it into the envelope and post it to you.

Don't worry about a stamp.

What's the deal on postage? Will the ADF get the letter through free of charge or should we include some of the folding stuff?

Oh ffs, if only I'd read one line further...

It's OK, Gregoryno6 - it's fine to be keen!

(I do it all the time... gets me into trouble though!)

A self addressed envelope is great. We used to receive many care packages - for which we were exceptionally grateful - however, at the remote patrol base at which we were stationed, we had run out of envelopes! I was often forced to fashion an envelope from an A4 page.

It always amazed me that Australians without a direct connection to the ADF would send a care package to deployed soldiers.

So please, continue to send the packages to the deployed soldiers, but if you can include an addressed envelope (no stamp required) you will be much more likely to get a reply.

One of the headings says:

You'll find the email address there.
Emails are forwarded.
