    Default Unit abbreviations/addresses?

    I have come across a few units mentioned (abbreviated) in a list with Danish names compiled after the war. The units are:

    c/o Operations 123, S.P.B.A.F.O. c/o B.A.O.R.
    [c/o No. 123 (Major) Staging Post, British Air Forces of Occupation, c/o British Army of the Rhine] (at B.160 Copenhagen/Kastrup)

    No. 5 A.F.C.O. S.E.A.A.F. S.E.A.C.
    [No. 5 ?Air Force???, South East Asia Air forces, South East Asia Command]

    No. 3 M.R.E.U. Esbjerg, B.A.F.O. -B.A.O.R.
    [No. 3 Missing Research & Enquiry Unit, Esbjerg, British Air Forces of Occupation, British Army of the Rhine]

    Air Traffic Office, R.A.F. Military Mission to Denmark c/o B.A.O.R.
    [Air Traffic Office, R.A.F. Military Mission to Denmark c/o, British Army of the Rhine]

    13 M.R.E.S., Military Mission to Denmark, BAFO c/o B.A.O.R.
    [13 Missing Research & Enquiry Service, Military Mission to Denmark, British Air Forces of Occupation, British Army of the Rhine]

    Could anyone confirm my translation of the abbreviations?

    Regards

    Hi Mikkel

    Not 100% sure, but wasn't B.A.F.O. British Armed Forces of Occupation (not British Air Forces)?

    But of course I could be wrong.

    BAFO was definitely British Air Forces of Occupation
