Nice of you to label him an Aussie, subby, but we probably have to admit that he's an (expat) Kiwi

So, does getting cashiered as a Knight of the British Empire involve some sort of ceremony like they used to do when court-martialed US soldiers were stripped of their rank and sent packing?  I'm expecting something like the opening scene in "Branded" where the commander breaks the dude's sword over his knee and tosses it out the gate.

Sure beats getting cashiered when I'm just a commoner. Half-hearted smile, chuck the fruit and eggs in the bag before the heavy cans, then give me the wrong change and send me on my way.
