Did Kipling actually write a poem with the refrain 'An' it's trunch trunch truncheon does the trick '?
Max Beerbohm, that's pre 1914, wrote a rousing song, 'And it's trunch-truvch-truncheon does the trick and in my childhood (that'll be the 50s) I remember a chap, a murderer I think, called Podola, being produced in court.
When troops marched along there was just the steady trunch, trunch on the cobbled roads.
