[rem: a sheet music print of this song with a publication year 1943 is in the The British Library St Pancras London : is the year 1943 a printing error or was this song indeed republished in 1943 during World War II because the subject became topical again ?. Assuming the topic of the song is "treatment" of wounded soldiers]
