New expiry date formats

In compliance with GSI standards MWE have adopted a new format for its box labels.

The main change is that the expiry date is now shown as a six digit code, i.e. YYMMDD, where YY is the last 2 digits of the year, MM is the month (from 01 January to 12 December), and DD is the date show as 2 digits (from 01 to 31).  

To demonstrate, an expiry code of 180201 means the expiry date is; 1st February 2018.
