GUEST,Matt_R ADD/Origins: My Husband's in Salonika^^ (38) RE: Lyr Req: My Husband's in Salonika^^ 16 Apr 10

"I recall the song being very popular in West Cork back in the 70s. I assume it refers to the WWI Salonika campaign to assist Serbia. Casualties from battle were light (for WWI), but many died of disease, including most famously, the poet Rupert Brooke."

Rupert Brooke died during the preparation period for the Dardanelles campaign in April 1915. The Salonika landings didn't take place until October of that year.
