In one of the Sharpe's Rifles sequels, Sharpe meets a British soldier in the Napoleonic wars who had been a loyalist from Virginia. The guy was kind of young, maybe 30 (and the story took place maybe 25 years after the Revolutionary War had ended) and he talked like Elvis.

There was a crime drama called Dempsey and Makepeace in the 80s. He's a tough NYPD cop on special assignment in London, she's local and HOT, they're partners. The actor playing the NYPD cop, Michael Brandon, complained that they wanted him to "talk like a cowboy from Oklahoma."

It's fair to say that each of the two countries in question has limited fascination with details about the other country's history and culture. We eat hamburgers, they eat steak and kidney pies.
