Old war songs for children

I have a character that lived around the late 1800s in England and had a music box that played a fairly slow song. I need a song that has a fairly slow tune and is about war, preparing for battle or at least ominous as if something dark is coming. This needs to be something a child might know the words to. Doesn't have to be super long, but it needs to be long enough for a music box.

If the song is obscure but the words are clear, even better. The character is meant to leave the others unsettled with his strange song.

I appreciate any help you can offer. Googling has left me digging through nursery rhymes and the like and finding very little info on the background of the song. Even by date, it didn't seem consistent.


GOOGLED:

Variants of "british children songs 1800s" and keywords- nursery rhymes, war, battle, England, music box.



Thanks to any that can help!
