Two gold painted UK Type K boxes commemorating the gold medal won at the 2012 Olympics by rower, Pete Reid. I think he has the most boxes painted in this way. One is in London, near where he was living, the other three are in his home town/village of Nailsworth in Gloucestershire. This pair are in the main street.

Olympic boxes.

Here is a rare, probably unique, set in Windsor a few yards from the Castle. On the left is a stamp dispenser; these have not been used for a long time - you still find them around, often in walls where it's easier to leave them and just paint over them. In the middle is a Type A box from the recently ended reign of Elizabeth II - still in use. On the right is a George V era (1910-36) Type B box with a double 'collection plate holder'; this, and the blue paint, indicate that it was an airmail box (I think this may be the only example outside of a museum).

Windsor triptych.

Two modern Dutch "2 slot" mailboxes we saw in Breda at our Dyxum meeting last month.
The right slot is for "local" mail (indicated by a range of postal codes) and the left one for all other destinations.
