The image below is of the knighting by King George V on the battlefield of one of our greatest generals – arguably the greatest allied general in the First World War – Sir John Monash
Knighthoods should have been restored, as we proposed, after John Howard and General Peter Cosgrove liberated East Timor. General Cosgove should have been the first.
In our recent petition, we propose a number of criteria for future Governors-General. Apart from eminence in their chosen field, and other criteria we suggest and 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.
There is a section on the restoration of knighthoods and dames on the ACM site.
