J is for the whistling Jolly Swagman – celebrated in bush poet Banjo Patterson’s renowned ballad ‘Waltzing Matilda’. The term ‘swagman’ originated in Australia in the 19th century and referred to a travelling labourer who walked from farm to farm in search of work. All possessions were carried in a swag, or bed roll, on his back! Although swagmen of the time may not have taken kindly to being called swagmen, the term these days is used with endearment.
