I've just checked the map from the link you posted and am disappointed
to see only one of the many post boxes I've mapped included.  I guess
this is down to not having a reference number tagged.  Ho hum, guess
I'll have to go around collecting these and updating.

I notice the map used is the OSM one, but has "powered by Google" in the
bottom left corner.

Off to get some references.
