Movember starts new month of slogan postmarks

After a dry-patch as far as slogans are concerned in recent months, November kicks off right away with the men's health campaign, Movember.

The first example is from Sheffield Mail Centre on 01/11/2018.

STOP MEN DYING
TOO YOUNG
SIGN UP OR 
DONATE AT
MOVEMBER.CO.UK


UPDATE 6 November.
Thanks to MB for sending two examples, one from Medway MC on 2 November is the illustrated version, and one from North West Midlands on 3 November which shows better than the one we received.   The illustrated version has a different slogan:



STOP MEN DYINGTOO YOUNG
SIGN UP OR DONATE AT
MOVEMBER.CO.UK

MOVEMBER® FOUNDATION


UPDATE 7 NOVEMBER.  Royal Mail has advertised it's Armistice slogan on social media.  I'll post copies of actual slogans when we get them.


UPDATE 9 November.  We got two different copies of the Armistice slogan today, one from Peterborough Mail Centre 7 November, and one from Chester 8 November.

Lest we forget
11.11.18
#Armistice100


UPDATE 14 November.  Royal Mail has marked the 70th birthday of HRH the Prince of Wales not only with a miniature sheet of 6 stamps but with this slogan.  Hopefully it continued today and collectors could try to get first day covers with this machine slogan.

Happy 70th Birthday to
HRH The Prince of Wales
14th November 2018




I look forward to receiving your reports of other layouts, and other slogans, which will be reported here.
