The British had marching songs in WW I. but not like Jodys,
one I remember reading that they were particularly fond of
singing was,

"Do your balls hang low,
do they dangle to and fro,
can you catch them in a mangle
do your balls hang low..."

The also liked,

"John Brown's baby has a pimple on it's bum..."

You are correct.

The military of many nations have been singing, (Hope I got that right), for thousands of years.

Would be interesting to read some of the earliest songs.

Thank you buddy.
