"Friends" on Herrick to send Christmas parcels to.

Can anyone suggest a "friend" (SNCO) on Herrick that we can send parcels to for distribution amongst the troops. The Free BFPO scheme is only for family and friends but we'd like to send out some useful goodies. See similar thread on ARRSE

We have BFPO addresses for Army elements but not for RM.

Cheers,

Try mescullyman, he is out there. I think he is on days at the mo so is likely not reading his PMs but I will ebluey him and ask if you like.

Or I can offer a WO RNR female who might help. Although no smutty comments please.

Still not got a BFPO address for Christmas Parcels for 3cdo Bde RM.
48 hours to go before they all go to Army elements.

The BFPO nos for HERRICK are 715, 755, 758, 764, 772 & 792. Not sure who is at which one, but hope this helps

Thanks for that. The problem is that unless I've got a name, number and unit I can't post it using the Free BFPO parcel service as it's only for family and friends. See ARRSE for examples.

I can see the PERSEC angle but the SNCOs in RA and RE elements don't seem too concerned as you can see on the link above.

We're just trying to do something to help.

Thanks, they're most welcome. Expect two parcels for distribution. For information, one parcel each going to RE and RA elements 3 Cdo Bde as well.

Full instructions and suggestions for packing and contents are here: ARRSE

There is a free parcel service for "friends" of serving troops. Your "friend" for this purpose is either:

P994991N
SGT M.C. "H" (BALD EAGLE)
B OMLT Y COY
45 Commando R.M.
OP HERRICK
BFPO 792


Or the Royal Engineers and Royal Artillery fellows listed on the ARRSE page I've linked to above.

Any further problems just post again here or on the ARRSE thread.

Best get packing - must be at the Post Office on Friday 8 December

See:
http://www.bfpo.mod.uk/freepacketservice.htm
and read the ARRSE thread as suggested in previous posts.

Shoe box size should be OK max weight 2 Kg (4.4 lb) but read the regs and guidance I've linked above.
