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.
