I left Cambridge Univ when I graduated in 1962 and went to the USA. Two or three years later I briefly went on business to Palo Alto, CA, and while I was there my hosts took me to party. Another man at the party came up to me and said "You look familiar; were you in the Royal Marines?" I said I was (as I did two years of National Service between school and Cambridge) and we found we had served together. I was in Palo Alto for the weekend - and so was he! I don't recall where he lived, but it was not in CA. And I had grown a beard starting on the day I was discharged from the Marines; he had never seen me with it.
