Nelson's Olympic hat

I'm not a great fan of the traditional captain's hat (see this post), but this Team GB + torch style looks rather neat to me.

It's part of the London 2012 Olympics celebration and as part of a "hatwalk" (groan, don't blame me for that one) several of the top statues of this city are being given the milliner touch.

Joining Nelson (above) are the similarly be-hatted likes of Queen Victoria, Duke of Wellington, Shakespeare, Churchill, Roosevelt, Robert Burns and Napier.

More here and a some pics here.

Sounds like a good idea as long as they're careful about who chooses the hats.

Legendary for all the wrong reasons but still 5th in line to the throne.
