Unannounced new Post and Go BFPO Installation

Thanks to Trevor we can report that a further BFPO Post and Go machine has been installed.

M011 is now located at the Ministry of Defence offices at Abbey Wood, Bristol. 


Images provide so far show session 0007 session was on 2 February (last Friday) so it is quite possible that this was the first day of live operation.  Both Machin and Union Flag stamps are available but it isn't possible to see the year code from the images.

UPDATE 7 February
I'm indebted to JG for providing a photo of later output from M011 - session 013 rather than session 007 above which shows a much better receipt, with a graphic logo.  DES = Defence Equipment and Support.


And Anonymous tells us that the Machin is MA13 and the flag is undated.

Any customers who require examples of either, or just the 1st class, please let me know and I will try to help.

UPDATE 27 FEBRUARY:  Original stamps are now available on our webshop.  From today both types of stamps have the MoD DES logo - see here.

As we can see from the picture, this is one of the really slim machines.

  1. It will be interesting to see if they come up with any overprints. I doubt it will be long!

  3. Interesting although the receipt says BFPO, when I emailed the BFPS they said they had no connection with the machine at Abbey Wood.

    1. If you contacted BFPS as in British Forces Philatelic Service that is correct. They are a private charity based in Fife - see elsewhere on the blog.

      BFPO HQ Northolt may have a connection - that's where M001 is, but good luck getting through.

  4. As BFPS sell the Northolt produced ones on their website I'd thought I'd ask the question - just in case!
