Description

The e-bluey entered service on the 29 June 1999 and was withdrawn from use on the 31 March 2017. At its operational peak the e-bluey secure website dealt with over 100,000 items of mail per month whilst the e-bluey service itself accounted for over 80% of the letters sent between British Service personnel and their family and friends whilst on operations.

To mark this historic occasion BFPS have for sale a numbered limited edition batch of 100 e-blueys sent on the last day of operation.

The e-blueys each bear a BFPO 707 special handstamp and include an information sheet telling the story of the development and demise of the e-bluey system. Also included with this souvenir pack will be an unsealed blank e-bluey so that customers will be able to see how the folding /sealing works.

These last e-blueys will make a great souvenir of the service that provided British Service personnel a secure method of communication between them and their families.

These last e-blueys may be ordered by mail order post by sending a cheque (payable to ‘BFPS CIC‘) to BFPS, The Old Post Office, Links, Place, Elie, LEVEN KY9 1AX.
