搜索隊回報 – 郵筒143

*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!
