Title is quite sad really, such a proud man, but no one will know who he is...
:) I usually have those kind of mustache and beard.
sometimes is funny to look at those old photos and find how familiar they could be.
A powerful profile.
Benicektoo, Admin of this site, requested this one!
Could this be Brer Fox QMG. I was on Adelaide with a POQMG Brer Fox and the profile looks good.....
As the "Senior Service' RAN/RN personnel were entitled to grow beards, a privilege not extended to the Australian Army or Air Force (According to Wikipedia, this remains the case in 2012). My father served as a Supply Assistant on HMAS Hobart from 1942 to 1945. He told me that he too grew a beard but that Commanding Officer approval was required because scrappy, sparse beards were not permitted!
In the Royal Navy you never "Grew A beard!"
A sailor had to request to see the captain, through the Commander, through his Divisional Officer for "Permission to discontinue Shaving"
He was not allowed to leave the ship until the beard was grown enough to be seen as a beard.
If he wanted to shave the beard off he had to Request to see the Captain, through the Commander, through his Divisional Officer for permission to CONTINUE SHAVING!
This was big ship routine of course, on a smaller ship the same routine but substitute First Leuitenant for Commander.
Also only a full beard was allowed, no Van Dykes.
