The Bulletin also includes addresses of Royal Mail's regional philatelic Special Handstamp Centres in London, Edinburgh, Cardiff, Birmingham, and South Shields. In our webpages the handstamp number is preceded by code
E and L for London

N for South Shields [North of England]
W for Cardiff [Wales & West]
S for Edinburgh [Scotland & Northern Ireland]
F for British Forces
FD - see details within the Bulletin
Note that postmarks for any individual stamp issue may appear in several successive Bulletins and may even be published after the issue date of the stamps. Operational slogan postmarks are not normally mentioned in the Bulletin.
