Edward VIII Post Boxes

I've been wondering where there are Edward VIII postboxes in Glasgow. I know there's one on Hyndland Road just beside where the old Hyndland station was. And further afield there's one in Kilmarnock near Kay(?) Park. Does anyone know of any others?

Now that's strange. I was recently in Monaghan, ROI and noticed one of them painted green. Never seen one before.

I'll try and find a pic.

Doubly strange that an EVIII post box would be in ROI. Do you think that when he abdicated they had a batch sitting there which they offered to sell to the ROI? Hard to believe that they'd've have accepted anything with British royalty connections in the 30s.
