I WOULD like to publicly thank Jenny and Julie at Royal Mail for their rapid response to my concern that two local post boxes may well experience the same fate as that of the infamous Walter Scott pillar box in 1953, ie the local residents would either deface or, at worst, blow the blessed things up.

They have assured me that the offending EIIR plates on said boxes will be replaced as a matter of urgency after an error by the local team.

They are confident this is a local, rather than national, error... Unless you know differently...?
