The file does not exist in 3.5.13.2, so I am to some extent exonerated for not 
knowing about it!  My desktop is still on 3.5.13.2 and I only have 14 on the 
Jessie box attached to my television, on which I mainly - surprise, 
surprise - watch TV, principally catch-up TV.  So I don't explore it much. 

Still, I installed <tde-i18n-engb-trinity>, and lo and behold!  US English 
disappeared everywhere and UK English took its place.  My complainant will be 
a happy bunny.  Thank you again.
