Welcome

Welcome to the British Forces Philatelic Service, a not-for-profit Community Interest Company(CIC) which operates the Forces Philatelic Bureau on behalf of the British Forces Post Office (BFPO). BFPS is run by volunteers who are all ex-Services.

We fundraise for our Forces charities through philately - our commemorative covers, first day covers, and books are available to everyone through our Online Shop and the sale of these helps our heroes.

Our Aim

Our aim is to provide a comprehensive philatelic service to organisations, units and charities who wish to mark special events, whilst raising money for Service charities. We do this by:

  • Providing a free advisory service on British Forces related philately.
  • Producing special first day and commemorative covers for sale at special events.
  • Using our website to promote British Forces philately to as wide an audience as possible.
  • Marketing BFPS covers past and present via our online shop.
  • Issuing British Forces Postal Service serial numbers for special handstamps.
  • Providing design/production of special handstamps, first day and commemorative covers.

We can help you mark your special event and raise money for Forces Charities
