Subject: RE: Report from the Marianas by Pete Seeger
I was really interested to find that American Marines on Saipan in 1945 were singing, word for word, 'Dinky di digger', a song made up by Australians fighting in the trenches of Flanders in 1916. I sing it at our local singaround nearly every November just after Remembrance Sunday.
