LETTER: What’s English is instinctive

A brief rejoinder only to Messrs Dawson and Howard [Letters, December 18]. Having had absorbing experience of other cultures (and just possibly rather more than either of those gentlemen), namely a year on the Red Sea coast, nearly two on the Gulf, and three years in the central African bush, I reckon I know if only by instinct what is ‘quintessentially English’.
