Tea, dammit.

I just came across this bit of quintessential Britishness in Marvin Liebman's Coming Out Conservative. It's about British comedienne Hermione Gingold:

"I always thought of Hermione during the war as the epitome of British pluck. When she walked to the theater during a bombing raid, she would simply unfurl her umbrella and carry on, certain that she would be shielded from any bomb."
