Post and history for Hulcott

Residents at Hulcott nursing home in Aylesbury are encouraged to continue with hobbies and everyday activities they enjoyed before they moved in.

One resident Mary, enjoys writing letters and taking a stroll. Whilst out for an autumn stroll this week Mary posted her letters and noticed that the Post Box was of George 6th era. Wall boxes were first used in 1857 during the reign of Queen Victoria and up until Queen Elizabeth II our longest reigning monarch, the wall boxes were installed with the initials of the monarch. In 1937 King George VI boxes appeared with the newly approved Royal Cipher which was a scrolled typeface with Roman numeral for the regal number surmounted by the Tudor crown.

We discussed the box with GR which denoted George VI, we don’t think there can be many of these around these days.

Hulcott Nursing Home provides the highest standards of specialist nursing and residential care for up to 38 elderly people.
