*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.

Yes, finally, we have got to the last postbox that had long evaded us (a KGV wall box in the restricted area of Shek Pik Prison)!!!

We now have photographed and recorded 61 old postboxes – our list is even more accurate and complete than the list provided by Hongkong Post that leaves out 3 of them!!! (The 3 unlucky ones are respectively at Sun Tin Post Office, Kam Tin Post Office and Shau Tau Kok Post Office; see my earlier correspondence with the Heritage Commissioner’s Office http://hkpostbox.xanga.com/730553422/further-letter-to-heritage-commissioners-office/ )

Well done, everyone!!!

P.S. Complete old postbox list ; search team membership list

P.P.S. As neither the Heritage Commissioner’s Office nor Hongkong Post is willing to make a commitment not to remove these old postboxes, I suggest all team members check on them from time to time and report back if you find them to be in any way endangered. We shall then make some noise, again, to try to save it!

真係估唔到,原來真係有植物自己生咗喺層油下面!

郵政署回覆 (28/12/2016):

Dear Mr Sin,

Thank you for your email of 15 December 2016 regarding the Street Posting Box (SPB) Number 463 located at Savanna Garden / Tai Po Kau, Tai Po Road, Tai Po.

Please be advised that we have a programme to repaint our SPBs on a regular basis in order to ensure that they are maintained in a proper condition. Under the programme, it covers any ad-hoc repainting need upon reporting of the unsatisfactory condition of the SPB after our regular inspection conducted at site. In general, every SPB will be repainted in about every 3 years. According to our records, SPB 463 was last re-painted in February 2015.

Our site inspection at SPB 463 revealed that some vine-like plant strived to grow underneath the white paint of the surface of the concrete wall enclosing the SPB. We have checked that the inner compartment of the SPB 463 is intact and in good condition. We have thus carried out the plant removal work and repainted the SPB 463 to improve the outlook of the box and the surrounding concrete wall. (photos are attached for your information)

Thank you again for your information. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me.

regards, Sonia ”

Note: There seems to be some kind of vines (living or dead?) underneath the paint! 油漆下似有爬藤植物(不知是生或死的);已通知郵政署。

Letter to HK Post regarding the vines:

“Dear Ms So,

My team is conducting our annual checkup of the vintage postboxes. In our visit to Postbox 463 at Savanna Garden / Tai Po Kau, Tai Po Road, Tai Po, we notice underneath the paint there seems to be trapped some vine that had climbed onto the structure in which the postbox is embedded. (I attach the photos for your reference; in case they are too large for your email account, they could also be found at https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BxbXpNwnjON2dVlmZ3B3bmRCajA).

We also have visited the box in July of this year. When we compared the photos of the box in July with the current ones, we noticed two things: new paint seems to have been applied in the intermediate period, and no vine was noticeable under the paint in July.

We therefore suspect the vine was developed between July and whenever the new paint was applied and somehow the people responsible for painting the box failed to remove the vine. If that is the case, we believe this reflects badly on the craftsmanship of the party responsible for the painting.

If however no new paint had been applied in the intermediate period, then it would mean the vine somehow found a way to grow on the postbox underneath the paint. This would seem to have more worrying implication on the structure of the postbox and therefore might warrant some maintenance.

Yours sincerely,

Sin Wai Man”

搜索隊回報 – 郵筒9

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.

Note: 根據我們與英國郵筒權威組織Letter Box Study Group通信,英國並無同款式郵筒,所以此郵筒應為世界獨有,並相信為香港鑄造。 In our correspondence with the UK authority on British postboxes, Letter Box Study Group (LBSG), they confirmed that they do not have this type of box in the UK. So this is believed to be one of its kind in all over the world. LBSG: “One of our members has now replied to my posting on the LBSG newsgroup as follows “This one is at Ha Tsuen, Yuen Long, and is different to ours. The cipher is different and the box is one of two similar. They are thought to be locally made.””

歷史:根據郵政署回覆,郵筒於60年代設於現址。

Manufacturer: Not inscribed on box; 根據郵政署回覆,他們亦沒有有關製造商資料。

郵政署就我們有關保育此郵筒的建議的回應 (18/6/2014): “Regarding SPB 9 at Ha Tsuen, AMO advised that we might consider keeping the box in-service at its present location and they would offer advice on conservation treatment of the letter box as and when required. Subject to the funding allocation, we will consider including the subject letter box in Phase II of the Conservation Program for Vintage Posting Box.”

Further reply from the Post Office dated 18/6/2014

Dear Mr. Sin,

Further to my previous mail, I am pleased to inform you that the restoration work for SPB 192 was completed on 31 May 2014. Regarding SPB 9 at Ha Tsuen, AMO advised that we might consider keeping the box in-service at its present location and they would offer advice on conservation treatment of the letter box as and when required.

Subject to the funding allocation, we will consider including the subject letter box in Phase II of the Conservation Program for Vintage Posting Box.

[…]

With best regards,
Mary

Reply from the Post Office dated 21/5/2014

Dear Mr. Sin,

Thank you for your email on the captioned subject. I really appreciate your efforts in digging out the manufacturer’s name of Posting Box no. 9 at HaTsuen. According to our records, it was installed in the 1960’s. Unfortunately, we have no record on its manufacturer. We are now seeking AMO’s consideration in regard to preservation of this box and see if they could assist to find out its manufacturer.

Regarding Posting box no. 192, the restoration work started last April and subject to the weather condition and the humidity level, the work is expected to complete by early June.

With best regards,
Mary

Letter to Post Office Dated 20/5/2014

Re: Yuen Long Ha Tsuen ERII Wall Box and Victoria Peak ERII Pillar Box

Dear Ms Chung,

I hope this email finds you well.

I am writing to make a suggestion about Postbox No.9 at Ha Tsuen, Ping Ha Road, Yuen Long (https://hkoldpostbox.wordpress.com/tag/9/). I have long noticed this ERII wall box is different from all other wall boxes in Hong Kong, in terms of its insignia, absence of manufacturer’s name (others are mostly UK-made, by W T Allen) and other fine design details. Recently, it has occurred to me it might perhaps be unique also all over the world. So I contacted a UK-based postbox enthusiasts group, the Letter Box Study Group, and they confirmed box of similar design could not be found in UK.

Also, given it is a usual feature of other UK-made boxes for the manufacturer’s name to be embossed on the box, this box might very well be made in Hong Kong. In conclusion, I think there are good reasons to believe this box is indeed unique all over the world. I would therefore suggest special attention be paid to the preservation of this box.

In fact, if my above observations are correct, they will put it in the same category as our GRV and GRVI boxes – our GRV and GRVI wall and pillar boxes are also different from their contemporary counterparts in UK, in terms of the insignias, absence manufacturer name and other fine design details – as being unique all over the world and thus worthy of being added to the existing preservation list of nine postboxes. It will indeed be useful for the assessment of their historical importance if the Post Office could confirm if this Ha Tsuen box and our other GRV and GRVI boxes were locally made.

Also, I would be grateful if you could advise on the latest status of the damaged ERII pillar box No.192 on Victoria Peak.

Many thanks in advance.
With warmest wishes,

Sin Wai Man
