This might get a bit confusing for non-Brits so pay attention. If you’re English and a bit common (like wot I am) you might refer to your evening meal as “tea” instead of dinner, and you might call your midday meal “dinner” instead of lunch (which is why the women who serve lunches in our schools are called Dinner Ladies). “Supper” used to mean a light meal eaten late at night and is only used now by the upper classes and middle class people with pretensions, unless they’re Scottish in which case they could be referring to a fish supper from the chip shop which they eat at dinnertime. All clear?
I don’t think I ever had toast and marmalade for tea, when I was a kid it was usually Fish Fingers or Spam Fritters with chips which we had to cook ourselves because mum was at work. We had it tough you know.

If you think this sounds like early Bee Gees that’s because it was produced by Maurice Gibb in 1971. Read more about Tin Tin here.
