It is very difficult to tell in this Black and white photo, but it seems to me that my father is flying the British flag while in South Africa. What do you think?

It is very hard for me to imagine him that young, younger by far than I am at the moment, anyone have the same problem?

He had lots of hair then as did I when I was younger Lol

I wanted to share this family photo of Donald Doust with the community. Location: Berea, Durban. Date: unknown.

This is a classic, Shaun! Somebody doing something besides sitting for a pose (though those are good, too). You’ve got a treasure!

Thank you Pip, it is a treasure indeed and something no-one new about or have ever seen until after my fathers death. He kept it well hidden for some reason.
It brings tears to my eyes, the memories of my father hidden from all to his last days...rest in peace Dad!

Thank you so much for your answer Teresa, hard to imagine him as cute, but yes he is in this picture.
I guess being a 70-year-old grandmother of two sons and grandsons, it makes it awfully adorable and cute to me!  :))
So true!
