There is the full English breakfast. around in one form or another for roughly 700 years. It seems that since the Edwardian period the in ingredients have been standardized to include eggs.

That's a fact, but the full English back then was the province of the upper classes. During WWII the only people who had access to fresh eggs were those who had their own layers; for most eggs were rationed and only available in powdered form, which was generally unpopular. The Egg Marketing Board's campaign came as rationing ended, popularising, for example, the soft-boiled egg with toast 'soldiers' for dipping.

WWII rationing caused other huge changes to the British diet: e.g. the massive West Yorkshire rhubarb-farming industry was decimated due to the shortage of sugar. 

Actually, that could be another daft poll! 'Have you ever tried eating rhubarb without sugar?'

As a child I used to pick a stem of rhubarb that grew plentiful outside and chew on it - really eating is a different matter though

As a child I remember eating raw rhubarb, but we dipped it in sugar after each bite. No wonder I've got no teeth left!
