Dear Mr Sin,

Thank you for your email of 11 January 2017 and our subsequent updates regarding the Street Posting Box (SPB) Number 131(located at La Salle Road, Kowloon Tong) and Number 215 (located at Mui Wo Ferry Pier, Lantau Island).

Please be advised that the repainting work of these two SPBs have been completed. Photos showing their conditions after the re-painting work are attached for your reference, please.

SPB 131 (at La Salle Road, Kowloon Tong) – completed on 16.2.17

If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me.

Dear Mr Sin,

Another updates that we have engaged a contractor, and it is expected that the suitable maintenance and repainting work for the two posting boxes would be completed by around early Mar 2017.

We will keep you posted once the job is completed.

Regards,
Sonia

=====================================

Dear Mr Sin,

Please be updated that we are inviting contractor to carry out suitable maintenance and repainting work for the two posting boxes. We will keep you posted the progress in due course.
Regards, Sonia
====================================

11/1/2017

Dear Ms So,

We had our annual checkup for all the vintage postboxes and we are very glad to note most boxes are in good conditions. However, we also find the conditions of the following two boxes wanting and hope the Post Office would consider carrying out some maintenance on them:
  1. No.215 (Mui Wo Ferry Pier, Lantau Island https://goo.gl/QEYifu): rust near where the main body and the base connect.
  2. No.131 (Boundary Street / La Salle Road, Kowloon Tong https://goo.gl/kLnger): rust near where the main body and the base connect.
I would be grateful if you would keep me posted of any updates on these two boxes.
Best regards,
Sin Wai Man

Letter to Post Office on 21/11/2013

“Dear Ms Chung,

I had an opportunity to visit this postbox yesterday and noticed a fairly large piece of paint near its bottom had come off and, worryingly, the exposed area appeared to have rusted.
When I checked my record, I noticed we have spotted similar issues around the area below the words “Post Office” on this box before. (We are grateful that not long after my correspondence with you in July 2012 regarding those issues we noticed the box had been meticulously repainted.)
Seeing the rust now and given its occurrence not far from the spot of last year’s problem, I am worried the box may be afflicted with rust underneath the paint and would suggest some immediate action for it.
Best regards,
Sin Wai Man “

Our correspondence with HK Post regarding this box’s peeling paint:

From us 25/7/2012:

Dear Ms Chung,

I hope this email finds you well. I just received two photos (attached for your reference) of the captioned box, which show clusters of peeling paint on its lower part, I think perhaps some attention is warranted.

Best regards,

Sin Wai Man

Reply from HK Post 26/7/2012

Dear Mr. Sin,

Thanks for bringing me to the attention of the deteriorating condition of posting box 219 at Mui Wo Ferry Pier, Lantau. My colleague Ms. Candy Fung, Manager(Network) will follow up on this. She will keep you informed of the status in due course.

With best regards,
Mary

Dear Mr Sin,

Thank you very much for your email dated 4 Jan 2019. Please kindly be updated that the top structure of Postbox 157 had been aligned to the original position. Photos showing the current condition of Postbox 157 is attached in the below PDF for your reference, please. .

Letter to Post Office dated 4 Jan 2019

Dear Ms Chow,

I am writing to bring to your attention that the top of the structure in which Postbox 157 (Liberty Avenue/Peace Avenue, Ho Man Tin) is embedded seems to have been detached and is misaligned (see attached photo). I am worried that it might eventually fall off.
Best regards,
Sin Wai Man

記 錄 員 : 002 黃少苦隊員 , 001 檸檬頭隊長

Note:
1. This is the first wall mounted postbox (嵌牆式郵筒) that the team report.

2. This type of box is quite rare and old, and usually comes with the crown. According to a website:  “單門嵌牆式標準郵筒亦有不帶伊利莎白二世皇朝徽號的,如位何文田太平道的157號郵筒 等。… 有郵筒研究者認為這些不帶皇朝徽號的郵筒都可能是在香港本地鑄造。” See this for its sisters in UK.

3. When you check the online location list you’ll see I’ve now created one more category “Special”, besides the original “Old” and “New”.

a.  Old: If there’s a crown or any other royal emblem, like ERII, on the postbox, it should be categorized as “Old” for our purpose.

b.  Special: When you come across one that appears to be so particular or interesting (for example, special shape, colour, rarity, etc) to you that you think it calls for reporting, please mark it as “Special”. For example, I’ve marked this one 157 as “Special”. For the “Old” and “Special” ones, please drop me a line, preferably with pictures, and I’ll put together a report to be posted on our site (it’ll still be OK if you haven’t taken a picture of it; so don’t be put off from reporting; remember, this whole thing is for FUN!)

c.   New: For all others, please mark them as “New”.  If there’s a new one that you want to report (could be for very personal reasons, so be creative here),send me the report and I’ll then put it on our site.

4. 001 and 002 have checked 9 boxes today, one of which No.25 turned out to be one of the many that had already been checked by other members over the weekend. Maybe someday members will cross paths when doing searches. So say hello to someone who looks to be searching a postbox next time and perhaps ask her/his membership number: “Hi, I’m 001 and you’re?”

*據本搜索隊與British Postal Museum and Archive 及Letter Box Study Group查證(見 1 & 2),香港現仍服役的七個佐治五世、一個佐治六世、及一個依利沙伯二世(元朗廈村)郵筒的設計及皇室徽號,均與英國本土或其屬地及前殖民地的同年代郵筒有別,為世界獨有。We have been in correspondence with the British Postal Museum and Archive and the authoritative Letter Box Study Group and they confirmed that the royal cyphers on and designs of our seven KGV, one KGVI and one ERII at Ha Tsuen, Yuen Long are different from their counterparts in UK or other British colonies. These boxes are Hong Kong’s unique contribution to world postal and postbox history.

Reply from the Post Office regarding the paint peel-off on the Yau Yat Chuen KGV box. (1st photo shows the issue as of 9/11/2013, 2nd and 3rd photos are provided by the Post Office after the remedial work on 15/11/2013)

“Dear Mr. Sin,

Thanks for bringing me to the attention of the defects observed on Posting Box no. 55 at Yau Yat Chuen. We have asked the contractor to look into the matter and take immediate remedial action. Attached please find the photos taken after remedial action taken. We are still waiting for their advice on the reason for the paint peeling off near the hinge. I will let you know as
soon as their reply is received.

With warm regards,
Mary”

Our earlier email to them:
“Dear Ms Chung,

We have visited the captioned box again today and thought we brought to your attention some paint peel off we noticed near the hinge of the door of the box. We hope this is an isolated case but are worried that it is perhaps indicative of some unresolved issues with the new paint. We shall visit the other eight listed boxes later and will keep an eye out for any similar problems. I hope you will not mind us bothering you again should we find any.

With best regards,

Sin Wai Man”

地 點: 新界 元朗 加洲花園 商場對開 (on Google Map, 經緯度 Coordinates: 22°29′ 10.06″ 114°3′ 15.65″)

KGVI (GRVI) 佐治六世 (1936-1952)

Manufacturer: Carron Company, Stirlingshire

* 此郵筒為私人擁有,並非郵政署財物,故其郵徽與本港其他佐治六世郵筒不同。

This is not the Post Office’s property; instead it was imported by the housing estate which owns it. Its cypher is therefore different from other KGVI boxes in HK.

註:中圖3, GR(較大之美術字體)VI(較小之羅馬數目字)意為男皇喬治六世(R為Rex男皇之縮寫, G為George喬治, VI為Sixth六世). 據隊長閱讀所得,  因喬治六世在位時間甚短 (1936-1952), 故此時期遺留之郵筒甚為罕見. 左下圖4顯示此筒亦為Carron Company, Stirlingshire製
