Good photo story. Obviously many of those photos were staged. Look at the one where a bunch of people are sleeping armpit to elbow and the guy in the foreground , with his eyes closed, in grasping a cigarette between his fingers. And interesting how tea drinking seemed to be a focal point of being underground dodging bombs that were falling above. You'd think they would be drinking something stronger....and could have done without the saucer.

Unlike Bostonians the English drink their tea! I can't think of a better drink whiles out on the ranges or taking a break from hard work.
Tea maketh the empire :cool:
I have a cup at breakfast time and a cup at 3pm every day, it refreshes the soul! Oh, and non of this 'infusion' crap - pure Ceylon tea for me, love it!
