GA015(B) Oarsmen Rowing with Beards
A set of two sailors manning the oars of the whale boat with two bearded sailors.
Sailors sporting what was termed by the Royal Navy ?a full set? meaning a complete beard and moustache…
Please note: moustaches on their own…goatee style beards or lower beards (no moustaches) were and still are banned in the Royal Navy. Either ?a full set? or ?completely clean shaven? is the order of the day.
