AVING recently joined the Letter Box Study Group (LBSG) while researching a talk on the postboxes in our small rural parish, I was delighted to see the article in the recent issue of COUNTRY LIFE (‘Wait a minute, Mr Postman’, December 7). We are fortunate to have voluntary groups such as the LBSG that document these important pieces of British ‘street furniture’.
Your piece on the Edward VIII coins (Town & Country, December 7) reminded me of the rather rare Edward VIII post boxes (above). There is one of these fairly close to where I live, but it isn’t done to disclose the location, as there are so few still in use. Dr Geraldine Perriam, Baldernock
