Famous People From United Kingdom

“Be British!” Captain Edward Smith’s command to his fellow Britons as the RMS Titanic was going down into the icy ocean might be one of the most famous utterances by a British man as he displayed great strength of character in the face of imminent death. The British have always been famous for their strong character, and dedication, or somewhat obsession with their ‘Britishness’. Today British men might be more famous for their love of drinking and their bad food habits, but it does not take away from Britain what all Britishers have contributed towards the world!
