Depends where you are of course !!! Its an old World War one song .. British Soldiers.. the longest rail platform in Europe at the time was at Limerick Junction .. many of the soldiers were Irish as we were part of the British Empire at the time .. there are also suggestions that the song may be referring to "Ladies of the Night" .. i wasn't around back then so i cant confirm either way ....
