When I had hair I was mistaken for early Ginga DI in the 'Bill', in NZ local mong is convinced I used to be a cop, as Local Government Officer have to smile and say "No, No I think you're thinking of.....", whilst wishing for use of SLR to reduce Invalid Beneficiaries (Bludgers) :twisted: .
In my late teens with long dark hair and heavy rimmed glasses (we are talking early 70s now!) I used to be told I looked like Nana Mouskouri, often by drunks on the last bus home. Obviously they didn't think I really was her because even Burnley pond life aren't quite so thick as to think that the world famous singer would be sat on a Burnley Colne & Nelson bus!!!
As a Junior Naval Airman (1977), I wore thick black plastic glasses & the buffer called me, "Elvis" the Jimmy asked the buffer, why elvis? when he looks nothing like elvis presley. The buffer asked if he had ever heard of elvis costello, exit red faced jimmy.
