Direct quote from the web-site in the related link... "The suffix dates back to when contributions were recorded on cards which were returned annually, staggered throughout the tax year. "A" meant the card was to be returned in March; "B" in June; "C" in September and "D" in December. Although contribution cards are no longer used, the suffix has remained an integral part of the NINO."

National insurance is a scheme where people in work make payments towards benefits. The payments are called national insurance contributions and certain benefits are only payable if you meet the national insurance contribution conditions. National insurance contributions also go towards the costs of the National Health Service. The national insurance scheme is administered by HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC).If you claim a benefit or tax credit, you will need a national insurance number. This applies even if it is not a benefit which depends on national insurance contributions. You will also need to supply your national insurance number in other circumstances, for example, when you get a new job.National insurance contributions (NICs) See the Related links below.

If you have lost your national insurance number card, the first step is to report the loss the relevant authority. You can tell either the Social Security office, or the National Insurance Contributions Office. Possession of a national insurance card is not strictly necessary: so long as you know your national insurance number you should be fine. However, if you would like a replacement you should contact one of the offices above, who will provide you with an application form. Having filled this in you should return it to the same authority, who will issue you with a replacement. You may have to pay a fee, and it should be noted that you are only permitted one replacement national insurance number card. So look after it!
