"It's a long, long way to Tipperary."
This handkerchief displays a scene of marching soldiers around the words to the popular wartime song, It's a Long, Long Way to Tipperary. Tipperary was one of the most popular songs of the war, widely sung by both civilians and soldiers. In the trenches, its popularity led to many derivations and innovations, including the addition of cruder lyrics concerning drink, sex, and conditions at the front.
