Man unhappy that his new passport arrived with a photo that makes him look like Adolf Hitler

Passport officers are investigating after a man was left looking like Adolf Hitler in his passport photo.

Stuart Boyd, 50, was unhappy after opening his newly arrived passport to find he looked a dead ringer for the Nazi leader.Mr Boyd, from Salford, Greater Manchester, had ordered his passport on May 22 after booking a holiday to the Greek island of Rhodes in July with friends.

The document arrived exactly one week later, but he was dismayed to find his reproduced photograph made it look like he had a toothbrush moustache. Mr Boyd then contacted the Passport Office. He said: “To be fair the woman was very pleasant and helpful.

“She said they obviously didn’t intentionally make me look like Adolf Hitler and told me to send it back so they can issue a new one.” A spokesman for Her Majesty’s Passport Office said: “All UK passports are carefully created and checked to exacting standards before they are issued. We will be contacting him to investigate this case further.”

Well, that's decent of the passport office.

My Dad's last driver's license photo made him look so silly everyone who ever saw it would burst out laughing. I told him it was a great defense against a citation, as any officer would so double over laughing it would put him in too good a mood to issue the citation.
