Nice song regarding the infamous Ticklers Jam - although it mentions the most well known flavour, plum and apple, my great-grandfather mentioned the vast amount of apricot jam they actually received, and this was mentioned to me by an author on Gallipoli too. Interesting as to whether it could actually be a reference to a jam tin bomb?

"Ticklers Jam, Ticklers Jam
How I love old Ticklers Jam
Plum and Apple in one pound pots
Sent from England in then ton lots
Every night when I’m asleep
I’m dreaming that I am
Forcing my way through the Dardenelles
With Tommy Ticklers Jam"
