World War 2 songs: Flanagan and Allen sing 'Run rabbit run'

Context

Bud Flanagan (1896 - 1968) and Chesney Allen (1893 - 1982) became famous in the 1930s as part of the Crazy Gang - a group of popular entertainers based on three double-acts.

During the War they released a number of popular songs.

These included Underneath the arches, We're gonna hang out the washing on the Siegfried Line...and probably best-known of all, 'Run rabbit run'.
