Flash Company Lyr Req/Add: The Baby's Name (Murphy/Hall) (64* d) RE: Req/ADD: The Baby's Name (Boer War song) 26 Mar 09

My Gran, who was a schoolgirl during the Boer war, used to quote a playground verse which went:-

Lord Roberts and Kitchener,
Baden Powell and White,
All went off to South Africa
To have a jolly good fight!

Can't remember all the rest, but it finished:-

And when the war is over,
How happy we all will be,
The flag will fly over Pretoria,
And Kruger will hang from a tree!

Bloodthirsty little buggers, the kids were in those days!
