Posting Dates for Christmas 2017

Christmas is on its way and you have until Monday 27 November to get cards, letters and presents in the post so that the British Forces Post Office (BFPO) can distribute them out to deployed ships and units in time. To help with the cost of getting those gifts to family members, the Christmas Families Free Mail Service will run until Friday 24 November 2017.

There will be no charge for sending letters and parcels up to 2kg to eligible units, including: Operation Kipion (Gulf/east of Suez); Falkland Islands; Operation Litten (counter people-trafficking in the Aegean); Diego Garcia; HM Ships Blyth, Bangor, Clyde, Diamond, Enterprise, Ledbury, Middleton and Protector, RFAs Cardigan Bay, Fort Rosalie and Mounts Bay.

Please see the full location list and last dates of posting for Christmas 2017.

(*The latest recommended posting dates for BFPOs 618/619/620 has been revised to 20 Nov, due to unavoidable changes in transit times.)
