So what consumables you guys think that there will be.We already have Chocolate,Cola,Cofee,MOAR food and better food.
The first idea for the crew 10% booster is the tea ... it is the most iconic british drink,but still how will it be called,"Hot tea"? Does that means that they drink it cold in the meantime? No ... they dont.

The other idea that pops up is the rum ... but this will lead to and alcohol reference and boost up the age restriction atleast to 12 years and WG doesnt wants that.

Any thoughts gentlemen ?

How about "Five o'clock tea"?

"Everything as planned. We can have our tea and biscuits now, war will wait a bit"

Tea, and either cucumber sandwiches or scones.

Or some proper Beer (who ever heard of an Englishman drinking rum, unless he was on a boat?)

"Gunfire" is a British Army tradition of a hefty dose of rum in the tea. Reserved for high days and holidays now I believe.

Yes it ought to  be bottled beer - perhaps ginger beer would be an acceptable substitute.

I recall Monty didn't partake but didn't mind if his troops did.

"Biscuits, Plain"

"Tinned Ham"

"Tinned Milk"

http://www.reprorati...WW2-Britain.htm - reproduction 1944 onwards individual ration packs

"Compo" packs included

"Luncheon Meat" and tinned brown bread (with raisins), tinned rice pudding, and tinned baked beans (Heinz)  - actually I remember eating all bar the tinned bread in the 1970s as typical everyday food.

How `bout a "Tea Kettle"?
I read that most (all?) English tanks had this installed, but, how `bout making it a consumable (although it is more of an extra equipment).
The Russians have the "Removed Speed Governor" as a consumable, so I don`t see why this couldn`t work?

Corned beef and hardtack*.

*Those are, infact, the normal combat ratio for Brits of the day, so I guess having them as special one would imply your crew eats even worse without gold.

Tea surely, though the army had a daily issue of rum until the 70s I think

The Navy got rum as a daily ration, the Army only got rum if the conditions warranted it. It had to be issued under the supervision of a reasonably high ranked officer and I'm sure a doctor had to be involved at some stage.

Bully Beef.

McVitie's biscuits

Cuppa tea an' a wee sit down.

Warm Beer - for the English

Whiskey - for the Scots.

Perhaps "Tea Break" in the context thyat the crew had that prior to the action thus
were in good spirits.

Perhaps even "Tea and Bully beef" . For similar effect to above.
