October 2023 slogan postmarks and other interesting postal markings.

Moving on from Royal Mail's special stamp programme to more philatelic matters....

Slogan postmarks used in October 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.

The month has continued the September use of the default British Heart Foundation support slogan in most places, but is off to a great start with a late use of the June Windrush slogan at Gatwick Mail Centre! My thanks to HH for sending this extremely clear example used on 2 October.

Empire Windrush slogan used late at Gatwick Mail Centre on 02/10/2023.

UPDATE 17 October:  Thanks to RW for the first new slogan of October.  This marks Anti-Slavery Day and, unusually, is from Aberdeen Mail Centre.

18th October

UPDATE 20 October:  A reasonable example of the other format of this slogan from Chester & N Wales / Caer a Gog Cympru Mail Centre today was on a letter we received this morning.
