Royal Mail Design a Christmas Stamp Slogans

Royal Mail’s slogan postmarks for the Design a Stamp Competition finalists are recorded in two earlier posts: first half1 and second half2. The latest discoveries are so surprising as to warrant a separate blog post (though the previous posts will be updated also).

We understood that the two finalists from Wales would be marked on firstly an English-language postmark and then a Welsh-language postmark which would be applied at all capable mailing centres on mail sent to addresses in Wales. Imagine my surprise, therefore to be given examples addressed to Norwich!

But the other two are clearer.

The bar-codes are different on all three.
