May I take the opportunity to explain a rubbish design. It is a rubber that has been hacked as opposed to being carved - I know someone who can draw beautifully and create beautiful art but his carving leaves a lot to be desired yet his stamps are are not the worst I have seen. A stamp I collected ...

Thanks MarkP.It was not me that found it. So not sure have been asked if I could locate the owner as the box is in a bit of a mess. If no owner can been found guess it should be taken in.

A few years ago I was staying with friends in the New Forest and they had an extensive list of boxes throughout the forest. We spent an enjoyable day searching some out. And because of the geology of the Forest you really need the clues (no rocks!) as you'd never know they were there otherwise. Onl...

Seems like the end of an era - part of the establishment
Very much so. We are all rooting for Tony & I know every one that has ever Boxed on the Moor appreciates all his hard work.

Hang on in there Tony.

But from my point of view the bang box used to be the best until the lock and lock boxes came along - the bang box used to go rusty - it used to fill up with water - only cos the owner of the box couldn't be bothered to check on their property

Would it be a better option to alert the owner to the error of their ways.

I am sure the Parks Authority would not be best pleased if they found lots of Ammo boxes.

May be I have got it all wrong! :roll:

Thinking back Gemma, I do remember something like that taking place. As you know there are still many ammo boxes on the moors but the owners either don't check their boxes, or they cannot be bothered to replace them with a toughened plastic version. Thanks Dizzy I wish you luck, as you say lots are...

I thought that Ammo boxes were not allowed on the Moor. Perhaps I have got it wrong Not sure about this, I was under the impression that ammo boxes were allowed but not recomended due to one's placed in firing ranges by letterboxers, you never know what you might be opening. Dizzy I am sure the par...

But would seriously recommend that they are double potted and waterproof.
