FMP lists a 1985 birth. The image says the place was L.F.Cyprus.

Any idea what L.F stands for?

Could it be Land Forces Cyprus as I believe both service hospitals were still open then so if it's related to a Forces child they would be born either at Dhekelia or Akrotiri.

Land Forces would seem to fit. It seems, from other sources, that the father was in the Army.

Thanks PatinCyprus
