FPO 080 saw service in the Netherlands East Indies before being assigned to Japan in August 1946. After a period in reserve it was in service at a FPO at HQ 34 Brigade at Hiro and was used until most of the Australian contingent left there in November 1948.

Unusual to see both thin and thick 5/- on cover. Few minor blemishes otherwise nice clean crisp cover.
