Hi all,
Well the campaign to get BFPO numbers recognised is getting nearer to starting.
Before it does, we need signatures on our online petition.
It's easy to do and takes lass that a minute.

It's for the good of us all, if your not postedoverseas now, you may be one day.
To sign the petition click here

The petition is part of the campaign to to get BFPO number recognised by cretain companies, financial instutions etc that refuse to deliver or provide services to BFPO addresses. Click here for more details

Nice one Posted!

Would it help if I could create an hyperlinked icon that people could copy into their email signatures to help spread the word? To do it you'd need to have a suitable logo somewhere on your website.

Thoughts?

Signed, even if a little off kilter. I need to RTFQ in future. Good site, but the spelling needs to be addressed before this is submitted if it is to be taken seriously!

One way to get round the problem is to enter your BFPO address like this...

Pte T Atkins
A Coy
1 Blankshires
Whatever Barracks
BFPO 123
Mill Hill
LONDON
NW7 1PX (which is the physical postcode of BFPO in Mill Hill....)

Which usually solves the problem - although not always. I've normally got this to work on internet sites and with the more stupid companies out there.

Hope it helps....

Cheers mate,
I'll try and knock one up tomorrow, I've also had requests from companies to supply them with one that says that they deliver to BFPO addresses so that they can put it somewhere on there homepage, like Richer Sounds do.

Jobs a good 'un. I was sick as a parrot after 3 years in Deutschland of trying to explain to mongoloids what a BFPO address was. Half of the companies just said it was the way their software was constructed and they couldn't change it!!!!

Hows the one below for you mate,
It's basic but given the amount of tasks I have running at the minute It's the best I could come up with.
If anybody else can do any better, please feel free.

So if anybody wants to put into their signatures on here or their emails then simply cut and paste the code

I hate to say it, but, as instruments of change, e-petitions are pretty worthless. You would do far better putting your efforts into persuading the business editor of a quality newspaper to run a story on those successful companies who do deal with BFPO addresses, how they generate extra business by doing so and (quick pluck on the heart strings) how those businesses that fail to do so are letting down our armed forces. That will get the message over to those people who are in a position to change things.
