Who'd be a Soldier?

I used to attend the Old Blackburnians (Old Blacks) Folk Club in Lammack, Blackburn, in the 1970's where the house band were The Wassailers. They did a storming rendition of a song, to the tune of 'Waltzing Matilda', called 'Who'd Be A Soldier ... for Marlborough and me?'
Would anyone know if the Wassailers are still performing? And does anyone currently perform 'Who'd be a Soldier?', and where could I re-connect with my youth and watch a performance of this fabulously uplifting sing-along classic?
