Armed Forces

#1 Post by 044hnoor » Wed 18 Feb, 2015 5:58 am

Armed Forces have been advised that the BFPO facilities in mainland Europe will be shut from September 2010.Personnel and their families deployed in Europe currently enjoy the same postal rates as the UK.Withdrawal of this long established tradition will further erode personnel's ability to communicate with their families in the UK and safe receipt of parcels etc.through a secure network.
This has not been widely,if at all covered by the news media.
Another of Gordo's smart moves :evil:

This was brought in during the war, at one time we had tens of thousands of troops in Germany and there were not computers or e-mails so it helped every keep in touch. Now that e-mails have taken over from the post I can't see how the Government can afford to pay this subsidy
