I used below code in breadcrumb template to display the notice and messages

<div class="GlobalerrorBox">
    <div class="container ">
        <div class="message fL">
            <?php echo $this->getMessagesBlock()->getGroupedHtml() ?>
    <div class="fR"><i class="fa fa-times"></i></div>

It is working for voucher code messages and add to cart messages but Newsletter error message not displayed in this template.

I need to display newsletter messages in same breadcrumb template

I wrote a blog article about this: http://blog.fabian-blechschmidt.de/messages-in-magento-only-loaded-by-default-from-core-session/

The problem is, magento only loads core/session by default:

<block type="core/messages" name="global_messages" as="global_messages"/>
<block type="core/messages" name="messages" as="messages"/>

loads only the messages of core/session:

public function _prepareLayout()

You need to check, where this message comes from, I would assume newsletter/session, but it is: Mage::getSingleton('customer/session')

To fix this, you can copy the messages over with an observer:

$customerSession = Mage::getSingleton('customer/session');
$coreSession = Mage::getSingleton('core/session');
foreach ($customerSession->getMessages()->getItems() as $message) {

Make sure this is done AFTER $action->loadLayoutUpdates() / $this->loadLayoutUpdates()

More on this in the blogpost.
