Thanks. Can't explain that. Just going by numbers.

Normally when a postbox is replaced, it retains the same box number. In the case of Box 366, the current postbox number is on Container Port Road, Kwai Chung. I don't think a George V or VI postbox would have been erected there at the time.


I suspect retired postboxes which are no longer of use would be disposed of. Since the handover from what I have noticed is that the postbox numbering has not changed.

Thanks Phil and C. Found a photo of Postbox No. 366 here and here after being "posted" abroad.
