Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Can someone please help me?

    If you are sending a letter/parcel to a BFPO address from america do you have to put UK or London or something at the end of it?

  2. Put UK. that should spell it out.
  3. if im address ing anythin to a bfpo i always put the country and the bpfo number
  4. I think but don't quote me, if your sending to a BFPO address from a non BFPO address outside the UK send it via London with both the London and destination BFPO numbers on the letter/parcel but you may more info from the attached link.
  5. On the next line after the BFPO number put
    "Via BFPO London England"

    That will fix it
  6. Cheers for that, I thought as much!
  7. You should always put UK - never any other country even if you're posting to a non-UK address ie Germany as it may go outside the BFPO system and possibly get lost
  8. loubella not true say for example:

    1 I'm sending from Germany to Belize, BFPO to BFPO, you dont need London.

    2. I'm sending from Birmingham to Germany, Uk address to BFPO, you don't need London.

    3. I'm sending from Newyork to Basrah, American address to BFPO, you do need London or it will get lost in the mail system.

    As long as you get it to London mail distribution Centre (Mill hill I think) then they will forward it to the other BFPO address/number.
  9. I never said you needed London - I said don't put any country except UK
