    Des I think every seaman at our time at sea had a green identity card, in addition to photo and fingerprints it had other info, including National Service number, NHI Number. If you went to some South American countries, your shore pass had a photo and finger prints, the Argentinian shore pass was white with photo and both thumbprints in Colombia your ID card was invaluable, especially in Buenaventura which in those days had no street lighting, surrounded by jungle inhabited by head hunters, at least they knew whose body it was even when the head was missing!!

    Hi Ivan.
    I have a brilliant memory; even thinking of donating same to the institute for the Daft, but for the life of me never remember an identity card.
    As you can see by the picture, I was posing before going to sea.

    If you have a good look you will see a chain on the fence, that was to stop me making tinplate boats and sailing off down river.
