WE all have our look-likes, but for Peter Black cases of mistaken identity are getting beyond a joke.

Four times in 72 hours, the Boambee East retiree had to explain he was not the person complete strangers thought he was, leading to the scary realisation he must have an identical double, or doppelgänger.

"I like many people I suppose, have been mistaken for someone else," Mr Black said.

"I thought it was just coincidence that I have 'one of those (ordinary) faces', who people mistake for some other ordinary-looking person.

"That was until Anzac Day at Sawtell, when no less than three different people, in three different venues, recognised me, as an 'old friend'.

Maybe it's because Peter has a familiar face, but the plot thickens taking a look at his family tree.

"I never met my biological father and I have four half brothers and one half sister, I was born in Kogarah Hospital in 1954, so who knows maybe I have a long lost twin I was separated from or a brother I don't know about.

"If there is another one of me out there, I'd love to meet him.

Peter's curiosity began troubling him when he was forced to produce his licence to prove his identity the last time he was mistaken as somebody else.
