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.

it's a good song, we also sing it at sessions.   

Pete Seeger visited us on his 1963 tour around the world Pete Seeger and The Bush Music Club, 1963
