Why can't people just stick to one Imperial Honours System?

Because there's more than one Commonwealth Realm. Get over it.

How about we focus on the fact that Trooper Donaldson won a Victoria Cross!!!!!! It doesn't matter if it's the Imperial VC or the Aussie VC, it still holds the same special position and honour.

Of course not!, only that it foments a divided crown! , better the commonwealth than nothing but the Empire was better because it was really united as one Crown
