June 2023 Slogan postmarks and other interesting postal markings

June's slogan postmarks continued from May with the British Heart Foundation (default).

New June slogan postmarks will be shown here; please check for latest updates before spending your time scanning, but if you have something new or another format, then please do send it in for publication.

This was on our incoming mail last week.  From Jubilee Mail Centre 02-06-2023.

Thanks to RW for sending the latest new slogan, which will please the greetings card industry, which is for Father's Day.  This started on 10 June.  A poor impression from Tyneside NE/SR Mail Centre probably 12/06/2023.

Don't Forget
Father's Day
Sunday 18 June

Father's Day slogan Tyneside Mail Centre 12/06/2023

Three more examples, from JE, today. Here are two of them in the different formats.  Lancashire and South Lakes (Preston) 12/06/03 and Mount Pleasant 10-6-2023

Father's Day slogan Mount Pleasant Mail Centre 10-06-2023

Father's Day slogan Preston Mail Centre 12/06/2023

UPDATE 17 June.    Now that it's too late to post a card for Father's Day a new slogan has been introduced ahead of the issue of the Windrush stamps on 22 June.  My thanks to Andi B for sending examples from Greenford/Windsor Mail Centre and Southampton Portsmouth & IOW both dated 16 June 2023.

UPDATE 22 June.  And now in the other format, which is actually a better look.  From Swindon Mail Centre 19-06-2023 (Thank you to MH for a first contribution!)

UPDATE 3 July.   After Windrush slogans reverted to the default for a period until 29 June, and then on 30 June a new NHS slogan was introduced.  


NHS 75


Supporting NHS75, Birmingham Mail Centre 30/06/2023

Look out for different versions TO addresses in Wales and Scotland.  If anybody has examples of these both from those countries and others to those countries, please send scans.  Thank you.

Here's one from Manchester (also on the first day) to Scotland with the NHS Scotland slogan.

Supporting NHS Scotland 75 Years, Manchester Mail Centre 30/06/202

This will run into July, and look out for the Dog Awareness Week slogan which will probably start at the weekend 8/9 July.


Other postmarks, postal markings etc,

It's been a while since we had any local postmarks, so here is the counter date stamp of Ranworth on the Norfolk Broads - and a photo of the shop.

Thanks to RW for these pictures of the Post Office at Galmpton, Brixham, and the cds it uses.

If you have any other interesting postal markings, please send them to one of the email addresses in the top right of this blog.  Thank you.

Remember, all postmarks appearing in June will be added to this post, so check here before you spend time scanning and emailing.  I'll add new ones as quickly as possible.
