The rules of etiquette when receiving an honour from the Queen, such as a medal or title, is, for the gentlemen, to wear a morning suit and a top hat. But the hat should be removed for the ceremony. I'm so glad that General Schwarzkopf kept his hat on. I wasn't sure if the military are excused such petty etiquette, so I looked up Johnson Beharry, the last person to be awarded The Victoria Cross. Hats off by the look of it. Did you know that although General Schwarzkopf's knighthood is only honory, he will always be addressed as Sir Norman any time he visits the UK. Most Knights are recognised if they sign their name with their award, for General Swarzkopf that would be KC, or Knight Commander. But his face is so famous that he doesn't need to let anyone know. When asked about his honour he said: "Compared to this, Sadam was a piece of cake."
