Burn's Night Before Jarama

On 25th January 1937, just before the Battle of Jarama, the newly formed British Battalion of the International Brigades was stationed at Madrigueras and Burn's night was celebrated. William Rust (1) says " The scene of the festivities was the Republican Cafe and the feast consisted of sardines , potatoes, wine and a pot of alleged tea. William Rust and James K Hopkins(2) both say that there was singing at the celebration but no song titles are given. Has anyone any information about which particular songs were sung that night, or about any other publications which describe the event?

(1)Britons In Spain: The History Of The British Battalion Of The XVth International Battalion by William Rust ,Warren & Pell Publishing, 2003 Pages 35 and 36

(2)In Into the Heart of the Fire, The British in the Spanish Civil War by James K Hopkins, Stamford U.P.ISBN 0-8047-3127-6.
