WWII Anthem

I’m hoping that you might help me in trying to identify a song/anthem we used to sing at school assembly during WW2, in England.
As far as I can recall the title was something like: “Lilli Marais”. I believed it was the S.A. National Anthem.
Hope you can help.
Cheers,
Peter Mills.

You might mean Sarie Marais, which is not the SA National Anthem, but is a very popular tune associated with SA, like Waltzing Matilda is in Australia.
