Field Post Office markings

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Can anyone shed  any light on the following Field Post Office markings?

 

There is a black circular stamp with Field Post Office around the top and N M Y across the bottom with A / AP 8 / 16 in the middle, accompanied by a red triangular censor stamp No. 3652

 

I'm thinking the N M Y is North Midland Yeomanry i.e. North Midland Mounted Brigade (later 22nd Mounted Brigade) and based on the name of the recipient censor 3652 could be the East Riding Yeomanry?

 

Thanks.

 

Neil.

Morning Neil

 

This thread has a publication which is available in some libraries, but possibly not one near you! Someone may be able to do a look up if they are local to one of the libraries shown?

 

Regards

 

David

Thanks David, unfortunately although I am back from Saudi now (need to update my profile!) I'm not likely to get to Kew anytime soon...

 

Cheers,

 

Neil.

Why not try for an inter-;ibrary loan from one of the libraries listed on the WorldCat link? They can only say no.
