Yeah, there has been a lot of expats from the UK returning to their home country lately. I guess you can't take the UK out of them and force the P.I. upon them.
I've known a few Brits in our subdivision and they easily get bored/lonely out of their Gourd and drink a lot of their home country's popular Guinness beer.
Case in point, my wife's friend was frantic looking for her Brit husband in his late 60s last night. Found him drunk at his favorite Pub down the street from where we live.
Luckily he has no plans to ship boxes back to the U.K., they'll just go back to the U.K. for visits.
