From Mr John Stidolph
Sir, - When I was young, not all that long ago, men removed their hats whenever they entered any building, whether it was a church, a shop, a pub, or their own home (except for Andy Capp, of course).

Times have changed, and it may be of some comfort to those who are offended by the sight of a man wearing a hat in a cathedral (Letters, 15 August) to learn that even in the Long Room at Lord's I have this summer seen members of MCC with their panama hats on their heads. Incredible, I know.
