Do you pronounce the 'h' in herb or not? And in herbal, herbaceous, and words beginning herbi-, e.g. herbivore?

British English pronounces the 'h' in all these words.

Come to think on it, I seem to want to pronounce the h in all, except in the kitchen variety version.

It's always pronounced when it's a VW. :D
