I wondered if you'd seen that. It's made my morning. Turmoil and chaos all around us and English chap spends eleven hours trying to make a cup of tea. It's restored my faith in the world. A bit.

im not a fan of tea but those who are will go to extreme lengths to " ave a cuppa"

a few examples include:

brewing up while using a support weapon with one hand

carrying a pressure cooker to 8000m to have a brew on the top

and a few non english folk make tea in
strange places

I read today that all british tanks since 1945 have had tea making facilities inside them...
not sure how true it is but I can beleive it.

And I thought we had problems last night when husbands new laptop didn't have the right connector to go to the projector for the talk I was about to give. Took us right back to the early years of computers in the workplace when most of them wouldn't talk to the printer or other bits.

Sons FIL took the tea making in tanks thing one stage further. He was in the Royal Engineers and at their repair facility during an exercise once, they set up a chip fryer. As everyone was relying upon ration packs, this soon got known, and rather a lot of vehicles had to 'go in for repair' so their crews could get some chips.
