    Hello everyone,

    I am researching the history of the NAAFI, from its beginnings in 1921, to the present day. It is quite a story.

    Currently, I am piecing background material on its operations during the war, then in the period 1945 -55, especially operations in Hamburg and Berlin.

    This will be followed by the BAOR days, Cyprus, Falklands, on ships and UK operations (and many other areas).

    I would be especially glad to receive personal memories, anecdotes and experiences you may have of this organisation.

    If you can help in anyway, I would be delighted to hear from you,

    thanks Nathan

    I cannot help, but I love the fact you're researching them, Nathan. Best of luck!

    Some of my earliest memories are of going to the NAAFI with Granny.
    Not even sure it was a NAAFI, now... They may well have called all convenience shops that. :unsure:

    Thank you von Poop. I will keep you posted on developments, possibly over a cup of char and wad.

    Nowadays, you would be hard-pushed to find a NAAFI...
