"This little pig flew to Margate, And this little pig went too, The first little pig dropped a bomb on the town, And the second dropped another, then flew. But both little pigs were shot in the air, And fell in the ocean blue." This collection of patriotic nursery rhymes, first published in 1918, was designed to instruct British children about wartime conditions: the necessity of rationing, the bravery of wounded soldiers and the villainy of the Kaiser. Now republished for the first time, to coincide with the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War, these amusing, satirical twists on classic nursery rhymes offer a unique insight into a little-known aspect of the War: the experience of children on the Home Front.
