Lieutenant John Chard: What's our strength? Lieutenant Gonville Bromhead: Seven officers including surgeon, commissaries and so on; Adendorff now I suppose; wounded and sick 36, fit for duty 97 and about 40 native levies. Not much of an army for you.

War songs of the soldiery Empty
PostSubject: War songs of the soldiery   War songs of the soldiery EmptySun Oct 04, 2009 9:27 am

I was just wondering what songs the ordinary soldiers used to sing whilst on campaign. I presume they probably recycled some of the music hall jingo songs relating to the Russian crisis, but were others focused predominantly on issues of ‘hearth and home’? The only thing I'm sure about is that 'Men Of Harlech' was not sung!!

War songs of the soldiery Empty
PostSubject: Re: War songs of the soldiery   War songs of the soldiery EmptySun Oct 04, 2009 4:21 pm

Cheer Up, Buller!, The Grand Old British Lion, and Sailor Jack were three typical songs of that era.

Another Little Patch of Red:

This John Bull is now a mighty chap, boys
At the world his fingers he can snap, boys
Eastward - Westward - you may turn your head
There you’ll see the giant trail of red
Dyed with the blood of England’s bravest sons
Bought with their lives - now guarded by her guns

Red is the colour of our Empire laid
England will see the tint shall never fade
For of pluck he’s brimming full
Is young John Bull
And he’s happy when we let him have his head
It’s a feather in his cap
When he’s helped to paint the map
With another little patch of red.

Jingoism came to stand for the belief that England had the right to conquer and exploit other countries and to decide conflicts of interest in Britain’s favour by armed force. The word itself came into use after 1878, from these lines in G. W. Hunt’s music hall song:

We don’t want to fight; but, by Jingo, if we do,
We’ve got the ships, we’ve got the men,
we’ve got the money too.

Enjoyed the Video. I believe that song was around during the Napoleonic war. And was on the Sharp series.
