A spokesman from Isle of Man Post Office said: "Last year the snow and ice caused severe disruption to postal services throughout the British Isles in the lead up to Christmas.

"For friends and family of HM Forces personnel, mail must be sent by November 29 for operational British Forces Post Office (BFPO) and no later than December 13 for static BFPOs.

"Friends and family can continue to send letters and parcels up to 2kg free of charge to any BFPO address."
