Smart posting box

Seen in NY8629 : The cottage on the Hill is this posting box in as-new condition. Known as a Lamp Box, because many of this style were bolted onto the side of lamp standards, this is of a very recent design. it has the royal cipher applied, rather than cast into the door, and the legend "Royal mail" rivetted on. I can't help wondering if someone came up with a design that was proof against the succession of the Monarchy and the potential sale of the post office to private hands! This style seems to date from no earlier than 2010.
