A recent discovery for me is 'Harry Champion - Any Old Iron'

A couple questions I have about the lyrics and song title. What exactly does it mean 'Any Old Iron'? I can't glean
anything from the lyrics about it.

And also, the last verse of the song references 'some trouble on' ; 'do what we're told to do to uphold England's
name'; 'give old England all you can' etc... Is this inferring the looming WWII?
