Find a BFPO number

You can use the British Forces Post Office (BFPO) if you’re sending mail to:

  • serving armed forces personnel and their families
  • an employee of the Ministry of Defence (MOD), or another official organisation, who’s entitled to use BFPO

You should only use BFPO to send mail to someone you know - there are other ways to support members of the armed forces.

Check for updates to postal services, including changes to services because of Christmas, coronavirus or problems like severe weather or industrial action.
