Marvellous moustaches from the past

You may have noticed more and more men have moustaches at this time of year; it's all in aid of Movember which is about raising money and support for a men's cancer charity. A museum in East Sussex has joined in by opening an exhibition of moustaches.
The photographs of Victorian and Edwardian moustachioed gentlemen will be on display until 5 January. They include Arthur du Cros, MP for Hastings from 1908 to 1918.

A museum in East Sussex has joined in by opening an exhibition of moustaches from the past.

Movember is run in November every year to raise money and awareness of men's cancers and mental health issues. Staff Sgt Alfred Moss, pictured here, was a prize winner in the British Army Gymnastics Competition in 1900. Later he became a music hall strongman.

Philip James Rufford worked at Hastings Museum from 1905 to 1935. People growing moustaches for Movember are being asked to send pictures of themselves to add to the exhibition.
