Mother Britain and her children
This song offered a version of the Mother Britain theme, envisioning Great Britain as an elderly dowager with "many sons and daughters / Scattered far across the waters" who would come to her aid in time of war.
She’s a Dear Old Lady, words and music by Arthur Ostler (Hamilton: Thomas Anderson, 1915)
