A Welcome to Britain

Starring actor Burgess Meredith, this 1943 film presents a guide to British society, behaviour and wartime conditions, made for American troops arriving in the UK prior to the Normandy Landings. The film features an introduction to British pubs and warm pints, as well as a awkward overview of race relations in America and Britain.
