I just did a quick Google search Peter and (I realise you were asking about 80s numbers), numbers beginning with "2" and "4" are for RN ships.

Hope that helps.

Nightfighter,

Brum is correct, BFPO numbers beginning with 2 and 4 are indeed allocated to HM ships. Look at http://www.bfpo.mod.uk/bfponumbers_ships.htm

Although you were looking at the period 1982 to 1987, BFPO 432 is now allocated to HMS Wave Knight which is a Fleet Tanker launched in 2000. Useles info but interesting.

Regards

Jimsigs1

Hello brum and jimsigs1,

thank you both for your advices.
The hint with the ships sounds good, though I haven't found out yet to which ships those numbers had been allocated in the 1980s?
Already saw that BFPO 432 is now HMS Wave Knight, maybe it was some other vessel in 1982? So far I was quite convinced those number's origin had been in Germany.
Still many question marks!

Cheers,
Peter
