Close shave.

What is the story with the big graze under Johns chin?, it’s way more than a shaving cut, it’s before the crash in Scotland, and we all know Johns level of manual dexterity was marginally worse than a two year old, so i can’t imagine him injuring himself during any recreational activity .. Hmmmm.

    I never saw a photo of the wound itself until this photo. Other photos from this day show John wearing a bandage over it.

  3. Oh!, I’ve never ever noticed, I’ll have to play ‘Spot the bandage’ now

    Not so much a ‘bandage’ – more like a small “sticky plaster” (English) – or a “band aid” (American) – back in those days razor blades were nasty little things that would be dull or even rusty after one or two uses !

    It’s been with strange fascination I’ve wondered what was that plaster hiding.

    I did not want to say Band-Aid as that is actually a brand name for a bandage. The bandage photos are more common than the no bandage ones.

    Hopefully someone will post with the correct answer soon. In the meantime, I’m going to go on believing it was an accident as he shaved off that heavy beard from India. Or he fell off his perch in the Kenwood garden.

    Probably just a nasty razor cut
