Sibley has this attributed to Daniel McIntyre Henderson, who died in 1906, but by their own account it is a WWI song, and the lyrics attest to this, WWI did not start until after Daniel McIntyre Henderson was deceased. VIAF explains all! (Only "Daniel M. Henderson" is given on the score.) The piano part contains music not in the chorus and while the chorus part could be performed as an entity of itself, the work probably makes more sense with the rhythmic interludes and impetus given it by the extra material in the piano, especially at the beginning few bars, repeats and end.

Also exists (either arranged as, or arranged from?) a march for orchestra, according to Wikipedia.
