The Postal Museum is putting together an exhibition that explores the history of postal uniforms.

From the smartly-dressed get-up of the Victorian era, to the florescent yellow and cherry red all-weather gear of modern-day posties, the exhibition will tell the story of the battles that had to be fought for uniform equality, the right to express identity, and the changes that have been made to reflect the cultural diversity of the country's postal workforce.

You'll also hear from the postal workers themselves, both past and present, about what their uniforms mean to them.
