Maritime Moustaches for Movember

Article Featured Image
November is time for Movember, when men grow moustaches for a month to raise awareness of men's health issues.  Now this is obviously a laudable effort, but there are always lessons to be learnt from the past. We've chosen a few examples of maritime men from the Maritime Archives & Library to demonstrate how to work a moustache with flare.  No comedy intent here, just serious style.  Can the man of today live up to the high standards set by the men of the past?  Images of Movember efforts will be posted on their website for you to judge.
