Another present for old John Bull

" ... Birth of the Duke of York". This ballad appears to be concerned with the birth of a child to Albert and Victoria, possibly Alfred in 1844. However none of Prince Albert and Queen Victoria’s children appear to have held the title ’Duke of York’. First line reads: Oh crikey heres a glorious pull.
