  1. Not sure where to post this so I apologise if it's in the wrong place and maybe some kind soul could move it to the correct place.

    My cousin in Canada wants to write to my son who's on Op Heric just now. I sent her his BFPO address as she'll be writing the old fashioned way instead of via ebluey but, as she'll be posting the letters in Canada, can she use a BFPO address and, would it be likely to reach him if she uses it but just adds Afghanistan so the Canadian Mail know what country it's going to?

    Thanks for any help.
     
  2. It is best not to put Afghanistan on the letter as it will only slow up the whole process.

    Instead she should just use the BFPO address with no country stated, but in Canada Post need a country then state UK. It will then be sent to London, and from there sorted through the BFPO system and sent to the relevant theatre. :)
     
  3. WOW thanks very much for such a quick response. :D
