Was there not confusion about one BFPO number getting mixed up?

I can't now remember the story behind it?

Alan,
Was this the half remembered story:

BFPO 47 (RAF GT) and BFPO 113 (Mansergh Bks, GT) The reason for this divergence 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 separate lines on the envelope.

Even earlier     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.
