I see the word "British" in your name.The "H" is now silent in the US. We get to keep one, after ejecting your silent O's (foetus), extraneous U's (colour) and strange vowel combinations (paedophile) from American English.

I'm so torn... on the one hand pronouncing the H in herb is obnoxious. On the other... Tom Billington!
