MOD extends its free mail service for Defence Personnel

The MOD has extended its free mail service to enable loved ones to send more free letters and parcels to those deployed around the world.

In response to feedback received from personnel, the MOD has taken the step to extend its Enduring Families Free Mail Service (EFFMS) from 1 September 2015.

It will allow a further 1,200 personnel serving on joint operations on land, sea, and air to benefit from the opportunity to receive letters and parcels from their family and friends for free.

The EFFMS is delivered by the British Forces Post Office(BFPO) in conjunction with Royal 

 Mail, and allows family and friends to send letters and items roughly the size of a shoe box and weighing up to 2kg from one of the 11,500 post offices throughout the UK to Defence personnel around the world.
