A British sailor wishing to grow a beard has to submit a ‘permission to stop shaving’ form. The Royal Navy then examines said sailor’s growth after two weeks to evaluate whether it is befitting of Her Majesty’s flotilla, or if the sailor is to shave off the unsightly bum fluff. Apparently wives (husbands?) and sweethearts have no say in the matter except to withhold certain favours!
