Found this interesting piece on a series of strikes by schoolboys in Britain in 1911. Anyone have any family memories of this?

Quote: "Boys left the school and paraded the streets, singing to the accompaniment of tin whistles and mouth organs with snatches of Tramp, Tramp, the boys are marching and Fall in and follow me (the favourite strike song all over the country)."

(What's Fall In and Follow Me?)

FALL IN AND FOLLOW ME
Parodied as 'My Maw's a Millionaire' by Glasgow schoolkids later??
