Re: Royal Mail Deliveries - Wedlake Farm

Thanks for that. I noticed that the box has been sorted out - new book in place.

Royal Mail Deliveries - Wedlake Farm

Found the above box yesterday (by accident). The box had some water in it, and the book was completely soggy. It's not listed in the Spring catalogue, so I assume it is part of a charity walk.

Thanks for that! I was about to submit a post asking what was box 48917. I found it by chance. I see it is part of one of the new charity walks. Perhaps I should send them a donation since I have 'used' their stamp?? :?

Further to your question though. The ministry of defence have a list available online in pdf format of their 'stuff' in Okehampton Military Range. Locate it here: http://94.236.30.88/NR/rdonlyres/EBF59C8C-8B0E-4349-B40B-B6566B658959/0/Okehampton_Artillery_Range_Observation_Posts.pdf Thanks for this...

Box number 28 - 'Belstone' - is still listed in the catalogue.

Good for you on reinstating some of these old boxes though :)

Re: List 1 - 100

Hi, I have a list from No.1 to the latest box. I do have a couple of empty numbers and some numbers that were never used and numbers for boxes that were numbered twice. Noddy I'm curious as to how you obtained such a list? And why some numbers were not used. Ironically I was thinking the other day ...

Observation posts?

Hello, The OS stopped marking the Army Observation Posts (OPs) on their maps years ago. I thought I had kept an old map with them still marked on, apparently I did not :( I noticed a clue in the new catalogue that mentioned (I think!) OP16. However, I have no idea where OP16 is or indeed (almost) an...

List of boxes 1 to 100?

Hello, I feel that this may have been asked before, albeit a long time ago, but does anyone have a list of the letterboxes from 1 to 100 or some part of it? I imagine quite a few of them are no longer maintained at all, and no doubt gone, but I was thinking it might be nice (?) to try and get round ...

Compass cord?

Hi,

I want to replace the length of cord on my compass with something longer. I gather the cord is generally 'mini paracord' or 'nylon tether cord'. However I can't seem to find anywhere to buy it from. Does anyone know where I might get some?



Thanks,

John.
