ZAMBOANGA was an extremely popular World War II song; or at least my parents remember it being sung quite a lot. Almost certainly traditional, with lots of historical associations (whether one likes all those associations is another matter). The Digitrad has it, with almost no information. Somehow, it must come from troops in the Phillipines, just as Bless 'em All seems somehow to relate to India. Does anyone know more about it than that?
