Having listened to the Gerard Hoffnung tape yesterday, to hear the "Barrel of Bricks" story, I came across some advice for foreign visitors to britain - and if it sounds a little dated, remember it was recorded in 1958:
- You will oblige your chambermaid by hanging your mattress out of the window every morning
All London brothels display a blue lamp
Ignore all signs saying left or right - these are merely political slogans
Zebra parking places are freely available
Have you tried the famous echo in the Reading Room at the British Museum?
On entering a railway compartment, make sure you shake hands with all who are present
