"The English are extremely
friendly, but never gushing. They
want Americans to like them, for
they do not consider themselves
Europeans,' but they feel that we
are their closest "kin", said Dr.
Thomas Stringfield, who recently
returned from a year's service as
resident surgeon in Botley's Park
Hospital near Chertsey, England
Dr. Stringfield, local physician,
son of Dr. and Mrs. Sam L String
field, volunteered his services to
the Emergency Medical Service of
the British Ministery of Healfti
last summer and left here in Sep
tember, 1941 for a year's stay.
His going to England was spon
sored by the American Red Cross
which called for volunteers for
England's Health.' Ministery. The
hospital in which lie ser ed was a
1,500 bed institution and was lo
cated about 30 miles from London.
Both Civilians and soldiers were
treated in the hospital, there being
many more of the latter, according
to Dr. Stringfield.
"They are a most hospitable peo
ple. They will invite you for a
meal and the meat in all proba
bility will represent their entire
week's rationing. In fact if a
guest comes to stay any length of
time, it is the courteous thing to
bring along one's own meat," he
There has been no rationing of
tea or coffee in England, according
to Dr. Stringfield. The Govern
ment feels that it would be bad for
the people not to have their ac
"More milk is being drunk in
England today than ever before,
yet you can't buy a glass of milk,"
said Dr. Stringfield, who explain
ed that milk is being rationed to
the children, war workers engag
ed in heavy defense industries and
the hospital patients.
The health of the English; peo
ple is said to be better than before
the war, Many attribute this to
the fact that the blackouts are
making hem live more regularly
and that despite the rationing of
certain foods, as a rule, people are
eating more sensibly.
In speaking of the custom of
drinking tea, Dr. Stringfield says
the English can't understand the
American's desire to ruin his tea
with lemon juice, as they all want
it served with cream and sugar.
He said that while he joined in the
afternoon and morning tea drink
ing, he did not learn to like tea
as the English, who drink it as the
American does his soft drink.
"The most depressing thing in
England is the nightly blackout.
Night falls very early, and things
are in total darkness, yet there are
more theatres open today in Lon
don than in New York City. The
government encourages this, as
they feel the people must have
entertainment," he said in speak-
of the social life.
England appears to be one large
garden in its highly cultivated
state. There are no weeds and
every possible stretch of land is
producting, according to Dr. String-
"Edinburgh is the most beauti
ful city I have ever seen, but the
famed Scotish Highlands can't com
pare in beauty with our own moun
tains here. There are no trees and
they are practically all covered in
heather, he continued. ,
While the Britisher wants tha
American to have a good opinion
of him, he still feels that in most
instances he has more culture than
the American. They are more con
servative than the Americans but
at the same time they have great
respect for the initiation and the
mass production capacity of the
American. Above all, according
to Dr. Stringfield, they envy the
self suffciency of the country, as
England is so dependent on pro
ducts from other countries.
"The more or less radical groups
often stage demonstrations in Tra
falgar Square for a second front,
but the average Britisher, while
willing to make any sacrifice does
not want another 'Dunkirk'," said
Dr. Stringfield, after a year in
England, in association with the
people in a great crisis, has admi
ration for their fine qualities, and
states that while lacking the en
thusiasm for life that the average
American possesses they are abso
lutely dependable. And as he add
ed, he knew them at a time when
their enthusiasm would naturally
be at low ebb.
