The Army currency was BAFVs and were used by single and married soldiers alike.It could only be used in military establishments.We also had very cheap petrol,you bought your coupons from the PRI or pay office - boy,was that petrol cheap by todays standards.Our Unit was in Berlin 49/50(a Sqn)I was not with them but I'm sure they wore the Berlin "Bear" on their sleeve!

Got the right answer for you.Go to the "search" box,type in" BAFVS"and you will see an assortment of BAFVs Banknotes better than I can ever produce!
Hope this works for you.
