This is an amazingly simple British classic.
Take one grilled gammon ham, plonk a tinned pineapple ring on top of it, serve with chips, H.P.Sauce, tomato ketchup and a simple side-salad with Heinz Salad Cream.
Follow with a banana split and cup of tea.
(or perhaps an espresso coffee).
Play some 'fifties steel guitar in the background and you're back in one of thase postwar Butlins Beachcomber bars!
It's still served in some of the few remaining Italian formica caffs.

For proper "High Tea" classiness you need to put one of those atomic red glaci cherrys in the middle of the pineapple ring.

Just curious-what exactly is gammon ham?

I guess the closest thing to it that you have over there would be a giant sized piece of Canadian Bacon, served hot. I guess it's sort a ham/bacon tasting pork steak, which sounds a little disgusting, but is actually quite tasty.
