Movember: Sporting moustaches

As we explained last week, we are taking part in this year’s Movember campaign, which raises money for and awareness of men’s health issues.

Throughout November, we are providing you with daily moustache inspiration from the archives on our Twitter account, with weekly round-ups here on the blog, showing you the photographs which the individual moustaches posted on Twitter were taken from, plus a few extras.

Our theme for this first week was sporting moustaches, with some fine contributions from cricketers, footballers, cyclists and swimmers of Essex past. Here is a round up of all of the images we posted on Twitter this week, along with a few extra bonuses.

Remember, our own ERO chaps are taking part in Movember themselves to raise money for Prostate Cancer UK, and you can find their Just Giving page here.

This week’s tweets will be fine examples of moustaches from Essex’s early twentieth century firemen.
