What is it with the 1940's accents? Why does everyone from that era have that posh type of accent? That "oh Hello chaps" kind of twang. The guy who speaks to the German trying to surrender in A Bridge too far is a classic example. I just think it's strange that people don't talk like that now. Do our Vets on here sound like that? I doubt it. So why did people sound like that back in the 40's? Odd question I know, but it's just something which has always intrigued me. Cheers.
