Nothing too cheap but also there's no need to spend hundreds, just make sure it's a decent steam iron and its new. I will be spending around ?40-50

Try to get one with a ceramic base plate, rather than stainless steel, as it's easier to burn clothes with steel.

From experience I'd advise against spending too much as Murphy's Law asserts the more bells, whistles & buzzers it has, the more expensive it will be & the higher the likelihood someone will accidentally knock it off the ironing board onto the tiled floor.

What is extremely important is to ensure you know how to "drive" it properly before you join as it can otherwise cost you hours & hours of lost valuable sleep.

Bought son Bosch iron - around ?50 and so far has survived rt training and beyond. It was a surreal moment though when he commented enviously on my steam generator iron!

Luckily for me my dad is a RAF cabbage and will teach me the ways of the iron!!

Haha, Alex and his petrol power 2-stroke iron.

Just had an image of you trying to "start up" your iron at RT with a pull cord!

I'll send some clothes for you to practice with. I expect shirts to be no larger than a sheet of A4!

Well first I'd ask why on earth all this ironing hasn't been done already!
