    Thumbs down windscreen & winshield

    Hi,

    Is it correct to say that the words "windscreen" and "windscreen wiper" are used in British English and the words "winshield" and "windshield wiper" are used in US English?

    If not wich are the correct words in British English?

    .
    That is my understanding too (though I have not heard 'windscreen wiper').
