British Forces Network

The British Forces network comprises mostly of BFBS and it's departments and SSVC and it's departments. However, if you were in the Armed Forces Overseas, you would have tuned in to the British Forces Network through the BFBS.  Both BFBS and SSVC continue today

 I have recently received an image from Philip Keable who was stationed in Hong Kong with me, of a BFBS badge from the 1970s and will scan that in shortly. I wonder if there are any more BFBS badges of former colonies/countries  if you know of any, can you please let me know at ?
