I knew somebody who served in Gulf War I and he said they were briefed about not fraternising “with the pepper pots”.

Well colour me stupid as Boris.

I though you must mean a pill box, but luckily I googled pillar box before I replied!

The wife of a previous prime minister used to be compared to a letter box, but I suppose that was ruder.
