BFPOs in NATO locations to be retained

According to the Belfast Telegraph [confirmed on 7 October - BAFF link] the Ministry of Defence has announced it is to maintain British Force Post Offices (BFPO) in 12 locations across mainland Europe after originally earmarking their closure for next year.

A spokesperson for the MoD said: "Families, federations and others have brought to our attention a number of potential impacts associated with the proposed closures of 12 British Forces Post Offices (BFPO). As a result, we have decided to maintain a BFPO service to these locations. They will retain their BFPO numbers so that personnel can continue to send and receive mail and access UK based services such as internet banking and online shopping."
