Restoration of knighthoods


This is the culmination of a long campaign by ACM .( There is a section on the restoration of knighthoods and dames on the ACM site:

In 2011 we observed that when Lt. General Peter Cosgrove returned fro heading the extraordinarily successful 22 nation INTERFET operation in East Timor, he should have been knighted as Sir Peter Cosgrove, just as after the Battle of Hamel, King George V knighted Lt. General Sir John Monash on the battlefield:

In our petition late last year, we proposed a number of criteria for future Governors-General. Apart from eminence in their chosen field, and other criteria we suggest an additional one, that the Governor-General be willing to accept the award of such high honours as Her Majesty The Queen may be pleased to confer.

ACM is delighted with the decision by the Hon Tony Abbott MP announced on on to restore the titles and the nomination of Dame Quentin Bryce and Sir Peter Cosgrove as the first recipients.
