It could be, Tom, it could be.

The BAOR and BFPO numbers are on a page of their own here:-

http://baor-locations.com/BFPO.aspx

It is thought that the BFPO system did not come into effect until 1957, so there could be a difference there. There is reference to 115 Company being in the Hook from 1954, but we have no other details at present. Do you have any, by chance?

Paul.

Hi all,

Each BFPO had at least one post office manned by Royal Enginners
These units used "Field Post Office" circular date stamps, with a number at the bottom which was not the BFPO number
Anyone have list of the field post offices and numbers? This list would have included field post offices throughout the world, and may have even started in WW1?

Cheers
Tony

British Forces Post Office

In the immediate post war era facilities for both official and private mail to and from the UK as well as internally within BAOR were the responsibility of the Royal Engineers Postal Services organisation. Within the British Zone the equivalent of the modern Post Code system was introduced with BAOR numbers being allocated to every major Garrison or RAF Station. Mail for the subordinate or outlying units was redistributed from these nodal points. JPW
BAOR 1 - Bad Oeynhausen/HQ BAOR

BAOR 2 - Berlin/RAF Gatow

BAOR 3 - Hamburg

BAOR 4 - Düsseldorf/Duisburg/Essen/Mulheim/Wuppertal?

BAOR 5 - Hannover/Hameln?/RAF Wunstorf

BAOR 6 - Kiel/Plön/Neumünster

BAOR 7 - Not in use (1)

BAOR 8 - Lüneburg

BAOR 9 - Wuppertal?

BAOR 10 - Osnabrück

BAOR 11 - Braunschweig/Wolfenbuttel?

BAOR 12 - Münster

BAOR 13 - RAF Sylt

BAOR 14 - Dortmund/Witten Annan/Wetter

BAOR 15 - Herford/Detmold/Bad Salzulfen?

BAOR 16 - Paderborn/Bad Lippspringe/Sennelager

BAOR 17 - Not in use (1)

BAOR 18 -

BAOR 19 - Köln/Bonn/RAF Wahn/Wahnerheide/RAF Butzweilerhof

BAOR 20 - Soltau?/Munsterlager

BAOR 21 - Frankfurt/Baden Baden

BAOR 22 - Lübeck

BAOR 23 - Celle/Hohne/RAF Fassberg



NOT YET IDENTIFIED/CONFIRMED:



AACHEN, BAD SALZUFLEN, BRITISH TROOPS BELGIUM, BUNDE, GOTTINGEN, HAMM, HILDEN, HUSUM, ITZEHOE, MUNSTERLAGER, SOLTAU, WOLFENBUTTEL, WUPPERTAL

In 1957 the current world wide system of BFPO numbers was first introduced to British Forces based in Germany. This necessitated some changes to the previous BAOR numbers to both avoid duplication and reflect the major reorganisations being implemented throughout the former British Zone of Germany. JPW




BFPO 15 - Herford

BFPO 16 - Sennelager/Paderborn
BFPO 17 - Münster
BFPO 18 - Maastricht (Netherlands)
BFPO 19 - Köln/Bonn
BFPO 20 - Dortmund
BFPO 21 - Emblem (Belgium)
BFPO 22 - Lübbecke
BFPO 23 - Celle
BFPO 24 - Iserlohn
BFPO 25 - Brüggen
BFPO 27 - Hannover Isodets
BFPO 28 - Brunssum (Netherlands)
BFPO 29 - Minden
BFPO 30 - Hohne
BFPO 31 - Hameln
BFPO 32 - Verden
BFPO 33 - Hannover
BFPO 34 - Düsseldorf
BFPO 35 - Krefeld

BFPO 36 - Osnabrück

BFPO 37 - Soltau, also Brannenburg

BFPO 38 - Fallingbostel

BFPO 39 - Bielefeld


(1) The reason for this was some silly idea of security when 47 Fd Regt RA moved into Mansergh Bks. The idea was that the BFPO number and the unit shouldn't have the same number, despite the fact that the address would have both the BFPO number and the unit title on the envelope.

Plant Pilot
BAOR 24 - Iserlohn/Menden

BAOR 25- Emden/Oldenburg/Wilhelmshaven/RAF Jever

BAOR 26 - Hildesheim/RAF Scharfoldendorf

BAOR 27 - Not in use (1)

BAOR 28 - Delmenhorst?/RAF Ahlhorn?

BAOR 29 - Minden

BAOR 30 - Fallingbostel

BAOR 31 - Schleswig?/RAF Schleswigland/Flensburg/Rendsburg

BAOR 32 - Verden/Rotenburg/Lienenau/Nienburg

BAOR 33 - Goslar/Bad Harzburg

BAOR 34 - Bracht/RAF Laarbruch/RAF Geilenkirchen/Krefeld/Willich

BAOR 35 - RAF Eindhoven

BAOR 36 -

BAOR 37 - Not in use (1)

BAOR 38 - Bad Eilsen/HQ RAF (G)/RAF Buckeburg (2)

BAOR 39 - Bielefeld/HQ 1 (BR) Corps/RAF Gütersloh/RAF Sundern

BAOR 40 - Mönchengladbach/Rheindahlen/HQ BAOR/HQ RAF (G) (3)

BAOR 41- Lippstadt

BAOR 42 - Lübbecke

BAOR 43 -

BAOR 44 Hilden?



1) The sequence BAOR 7, BAOR 17, BAOR 27 and BAOR 37 were never used to avoid confusion surrounding the handwritten English and German style figures 1 and 7.

2) Bad Eilsen/ HQ RAF (G) originally BAOR 1? Allocated separate Post Code in 19?? due to volume of mail.


3) HQ BAOR/HQ RAF (G) moved from Bad Oeynhausen/Bad Eilsen to Rheindahlen in 1954 and were reallocated to BAOR 40.

Cynic

Welcome, what a magnificent contribution

You don't by chance have the details of the system in use between 1947 and 1952 involving BAOR rather than BFPO numbers?

Gordon

Thank you but if you look carefully you will see your reference is a transcript of my original contribution to be still found off the site main, not forum, page.

There were gaps then, still more now following Steve and my ongoing researches into the 1945-48 period of BAOR

Ultimately I would love to produce of BAOR era post codes for the period 1947--52 in a similar format to Cynic's contribution but that is a long way off yet and may never be completed.

What happened to B.F.P.O. 33?

It used to be Bad Harzburg, Goslar but was later Hannover and area including Wölfenbuttel.

I expect it closed in the early 1990's when the R.A.C. recce unit was withdrawn.

jimsigs1,

Yes. I believe 33 was officially listed as Hannover but it covered a wide area including the old rest centres at Bad Harzburg and the barracks at Goslar and STC Silberhutte I think and may have extended to the Border crossing at Helmstedt although that was also covered by Berlin as most of the RMP and REME seemed to be based there.

This simple topic of B.F.P.O.'s seems to have generated lots of interest and correspondence and all interesting. I have seen some published lists but none as detailed as the ones listed above.
