I work in after school care and we are always looking for different things to teach the kids.I wanted to teach them a game I played as a kid called Chocolate Soldiers,however,I can't find anyone who remembers it.It was similar to What's the time mister wolf and Polo,where on person stood at one wall and the others across from them.The group sang "we're the Chocolate soldiers and we're coming to see the king.Thing is,that's all remember.Be grateful if anyone can help!

thanks, Tulip

Was this pre-war? I mind Red Rover but not this game. My wife might have a book on Scottish games. I'll have a look for it.
