I'm researching letters home from Northampton Post Office staff in the services. One letter from a Lance Corporal in the 2nd Battn Northamptonshire Regiment indicates that it was sent from APO 1810. I believe that in May / June 1942, the Battn went from Madagascar to PAI Force via an overland journey through India, and that the address may relate to one of the Indian ports. Is there a list of the APO numbers anywhere? I'd love to know where he wrote from if anyone could help. This snippet may offer other clues: L.CPL. DICKY DEACON (APO 1810) Have been ashore at a modern City out East where Black Out doesn't exist, and oranges and coconuts grow by the side of the road. Buses, Cinemas and Canteens are tree for the troops, and the meals are wonderful. Fruit is very cheap - grapes 6d a bunch. They still have Rickshaws drawn by natives in War paint, a1though the main transport is streamlined Cars. Several languages are spoken but the Europeans and a lot of the natives speak English.
