As this thread has a long way to go before it gets its pension I'll add one obscure fact.

In "VP and cider" the VP was indeed a cheap fortified wine. VP stands for "Vine Products" and was produced from imported grape juice concentrate. It was made in concrete tanks at Kingston on Thames, and could therefore call itself "British Wine".
