Dear Old Blighty: Songs of the First World War


Notes

Contemporary recordings from the music-hall to the trenches. The recordings are from 1901 to 1925, but most were sung by Allied soldiers on active duty.

Many patriotic songs of the era included some level of anti-German sentiment, mostly directed towards the Kaiser. I've tried to keep those songs to a minimum.
