In the meantime, I have discovered a few paragraphs from a study of the history of the telephone Kiosk in Jersey posted up in the "What do you know about Jersey?" thread, link below...viewtopic.php?f=2&t=61101&p=614332#p614332
"Finally, there is a single example of a preserved AA Box, No. 687 (figure 20), located opposite Trinity Church. This box is constructed from hardwood and when in use it contained a telephone to connect to the AA emergency switchboard. These boxes were often fitted with subscriber type coin collecting boxes, although earlier some simply contained a single telephone that was connected via a private circuit directly to the AA offices. Access was only available to AA members, who were provided with a Yale type key to enable access. Originally a number of these boxes were installed around the island during 1953 including number 686 at St Ouen’s Bay, at Gorey on the corner of Rue a Don and Gorey Village, and at St John near the church. Some of these were replaced by steel pillar style telephone mounts starting in February 1977. This latter type became favoured by the AA needing lower maintenance before being finally abandoned by the organization in 2002 because of the rise in mobile telephone usage by motorists. The Trinity box was saved as a result of a campaign by local residents in April 1988.
