...and G'day to you, Bob.
What I was trying to say, in my stumbling way, was that someone (and it might have beeb the Revd.Olly Marton) collected a whole song about 'Who'll be a Soldier?' circa 1910, but thought that all except the first verse was obscene. Hence, he preserved only the melody plus verse one. Pete Coe, I believe, built on that to create his song.
