In our area of Surrey we called it "He".

A variation was King He, or Kingy (I was never sure which), where "it" would throw a sorbo or tennis ball to hit someone, they would then join "it". The "its" would grow in number as the game progressed. The next "it" was either the last one or the first one caught.

The one with the tin we called Kick Can Bobby - "1, 2, 3, I see John (or whoever)" and "I am home, 1, 2, 3."

Time out was called Veins (Vains?) or Veinites.
