Edward VIII Postbox — The Holy Grail   12 comments

Edward VIII postbox Worcester and me s

Right.  So, this was the thing I came to Worcester for, the Holy Grail to post box enthusiasts — an Edward VIII postbox, one of only 161 left nationwide.  I was deathly ill the day before the Isle of Wight Marathon so the run I did to loosen up ruined me with regard to seeking out the one in Sandown a few miles from my hotel.

So, that’s the last one.  Sigh.  I’ve really enjoyed the postbox search; what next…what next?

  5. There are 2 E8R pillars on the IOW streets. Melville Street Sandown and Green Lane SHANKLIN. There are also 2 telephone exchanges with full E8R crown cypher and 1936 on the datestones on the Island.
    My museum has 2 E8R pillarboxes, an E8R wooden ludlow box and a large wall box that I had an E8R door cast for. There are still some 160 approx on the streets and anyone that wants full details and information should join the Letter Box Study Group http://www.LBSG.org
