Chapter 8 Appendix C

This Appendix lists all numbered field post offices and gives in parentheses after the office number the key to type (1 to 6) as also used in Appendix 8B. Against each field post office number appears either the identification of the parent formation etc of that office, or the units known to have used it, or the words 'Not seen' (indicating that no item from that office has been seen). Dates are given where possible. Positive identifications are underlined. Also given, where these may be a further aid to identification, are identifications from a variety of sources: these are in parentheses. Chapter 8 should be read before using this Appendix.

The key to the types is as follows:

  1. kuk Hauptfeldpostamt (HptFpA) ie Austrian head field post office
  2. kuk Feldpostamt (FpA) ie Austrian field post office
  3. kuk Etappenpostamt (EtpA) ie Austrian base post office
  4. Tábori Föpostahivatal ie Hungarian head field post office
  5. Tábori Postahivatal ie Hungarian field post office
  6. Hadtáp-postahivatal ie Hungarian base post office

FPOs 1 - 299
