Military mail, as opposed to civilian mail, refers to thepostal servicesprovided by variousarmed forcesthat allow serving members to send and receive mail.

A primary feature of military mail systems is that normally they are subsidized to ensure that military mail posted between duty stations abroad and the home country (or vice versa) does not cost the sender any more than normal domestic mail traffic. In some cases, military personnel in a combat zone may post letters and/or packages to the home country for free, while in others, senders located in a specific overseas area may send military mail to another military recipient, also located in the same overseas area, without charge. Additionally, military postal systems in a host nation may have special agreements with that host nation's postal service allowing military postal customers to send mail to addresses in that host nation at the military's domestic postage rate using their own postage and currency. Merchandise and other goods sent via military mail systems may also enjoy duty-free privileges in accordance with Status of Forces Agreements.

The first known use of military mail was by the Egyptian army in 2000 B.C.[citation needed]Modern military mail is used by various armies, and in some nations may even vary depending on the branch of service.

    The origins of the BFPO can be traced back to Saxon times. TheAnglo-Saxon Chroniclemake mention of messengers being sent byKingEdward the Elder(899-924) to recall members of the Kentfyrd,[1]but it is generally regarded that the origins of the postal services stem from theKing's Messengers(Nuncii et Cursores) of medieval times. In particular theRoyal Postestablished in the reign ofKing Edward IV(1461–83) to support his troops engaged in a war against Scotland.[2]

    In 1795 Parliament granted the penny postage concession to soldiers and sailors of theBritish ArmyandRoyal Navy.[3]Four years later, in 1799, theDuke of Yorkappointed Henry Darlot, an ‘intelligent clerk’ from theGeneral Post Office(GPO) as the Army Postmaster to accompany his expedition to Helder.[4]

    Thomas Reynolds, as the British Post Office Agent inLisbon, Portugal was made responsible for coordinating the exchange of the British Army’s mails at the port during thePeninsular War(1809–14). Two Sergeant Postmasters were appointed to work with Reynolds. The sergeants reported to theDuke of Wellington’s the Superintendent of Military Communications, Major Scovell and later Lieutenant Colonel Sturgeon.[5]

    After complaints about the mail services to the British troops fighting in the Crimean War (1854–56) the Postmaster General authorised the secondment of GPO staff to organise and distribute mail in the theatre of war. A Base Army Post Office was established inConstantinopleand a field post Office with the Army Headquarters atBalaklava.[6]

    The provision of a mail service to soldiers was a very ad hoc affair until 1882 when the Army Post Office Corps (APOC) was raised from24th Middlesex Rifle Volunteersto accompany theBritish Expeditionary Force sent to Egyptin the same year. Its task was to perform "Postal Duties in the Field". The 24th Middlesex Rifle Volunteers was recruited entirely from the staff of the BritishGeneral Post Office, and was commanded by Lt ColJL du Plat Taylor, whose idea it was to have a Postal Corps.

    Air Mail Letter Card postmarked Poczta Polowa 111 on 4.11.1943. which at the time was located in Julis Camp nearQastina, Palestine.[7]British censor sticker on a letter sent in late 1939 from The Netherlands to Palestine (then under British mandate)1968 censored letter from anIsraelisoldier. The triangular frank depictsIsrael Defense Forceslogo (Sword wrapped by an olive branch) and denotes sender's military unit postal identification. Red inscription on sticker at right denotes the letter was inspected by theIsraeli Military Censor.

    In 1913 the Army Post Office Corps was re-organised to form theRoyal Engineers(Postal Section), under a Director of the Army Postal Service (DAPS), Lt Col W Price RE. The service remained part of theRoyal Engineersuntil it was transferred to theRoyal Logistic Corpson its formation in 1993.

    At the end ofWorld War I(1914–18), the Royal Engineers (Postal Section) along with theRoyal Air Force(RAF) helped to pioneer international airmail services, by setting up airmail routes service theBritish Army of the Rhine.

    DuringWorld War II(1939–45), they popularised theaérogramme, when they adopted it as theAir Mail Letter Cardin 1941 to reduce the bulk and weight of mail so that it could be transported by air.

    In 1962 the Royal Engineers (Postal & Courier Communications), took over the responsibility for handling theRoyal Navy’s mail and thereby became a provider of a tri-service facility based in the old Middlesex Regiment's Depot at Mill Hill.

    Indian Army Postal Service Corps[edit]

    Largely based on the system followed by the British Indian Army in the 19th century, the Indian Military provides the services of the Army Postal Service Corps which handles the mails for the three defence forces (Army,Navy,Air Force). The Corps however is part of the Indian Army, and is staffed by volunteers from the civilianIndian Postal Service. Mails written to soldiers on field posting do not contain their regular postal address, but their number, rank, name, andUnitnumber ending with a suffix - "c/o xxx A.P.O". Soldiers are also not allowed to send mails from regular civil Post Offices even if their area of duty has such facilities. For more information, visit the APSC website.

    U.S. Military Postal Service (MPS)[edit]This sectiondoes notciteanyreferences or sources.Please help improve this section byadding citations to reliable sources. Unsourced material may be challenged andremoved.(June 2013)Marines from4th Marine Divisionset up a post office to distributeairdroppedmail during theBattle of Iwo Jima

    The MPS is required to adhere toUnited States Postal Service(USPS) rules, federal laws, and various international laws and agreements for movement of military mail into more than 85 countries. The individual military services (Army,Marine Corps,Navy,Coast Guard,Air Force) are each, themselves, responsible for the costs, manpower, and facilities of mail that travels through their own department. This is why the military services maintains command and control over all military postal assets, both in the United States and abroad.

    Letter To HomebyStephen H. Randall, U. S. ArmyVietnam Combat ArtistsTeam VII (CAT VII 1968)

    The MPS also supports mail delivery for U.S. diplomatic facilities overseas and to deployed personnel in combat zones worldwide. Most USPS extra services, such as Certified Mail, registered mail, delivery confirmation, insured mail, certificate of mailing, return receipt, restricted delivery and return receipt for merchandise are available to the MPS. Signature confirmation may be available in the future. Mail sent from one military post office (MPO) to another MPO can be sent for free as inner/intra-theater delivery service (IDS) as long as it does not transit the United States. Military postage rates are equivalent to U.S. domestic postage rates because the Services pay the second destination transportation (SDT) costs to, from, and between MPOs. The postage paid on mail to/from MPOs only covers the cost of transporting the mail within the U.S. All military mail between the U.S. and overseas locations is subject to customs inspection in the country of destination, and customs declarations must normally be attached to packages and larger mail pieces. Some host nations may restrict or prohibit the importation of certain items, such as adult oriented material, meat products (especially pork), firearms, tobacco, etc., via the MPS. The complete list of restrictions is published in the Postal Bulletin (Overseas Military Mail), published on USPS.com. Other host nations (e.g., Germany) may have a special interchange agreement with the military postal service allowing for the mailing of articles to host nation civilian addresses.

    MPOs operated or supported by the Army or Air Force use the city abbreviation APO (Army Post Office or Air Force Post Office), while Navy and Marine Corps use the city abbreviation FPO (Fleet Post Office).

    USPS added Diplomatic Post Office (DPO) as a valid overseas address effective January 18, 2009. The city abbreviation is DPO. As of March 2009 there are sixteen U.S. embassy locations known as DPOs. The other approximately ninety overseas U.S. embassy post offices fall under the management oversight of the Services and so are known as either APOs or FPOs. However, many will be switching to the DPO address.

    Three"state" codeshave been assigned depending on the geographic location of the military mail recipient and also the carrier route used for sorting the mail. They are:

    • AE (ZIPs 09xxx) for Armed Forces Europe which includes Canada, Middle East, and Africa
    • AP (ZIPs 962xx - 966xx) for Armed Forces Pacific
    • AA (ZIPs 340xx) for Armed Forces (Central and South) Americas
