G'day again,

Ian: I should also mention - although you may know this, that Sydney Carter's tune is much more subtle than the Aledermaston mob's When Johnny Comes Marching Home. His tune starts with something quite like Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star - then, in the second half of the line, it's like a petulant child's repetitive chant.

Here is the tune (the whole 3 stanzas, with the variant ending) in MIDI and ABC form:
