It remains a popular enough song in its genre to date. Somewhere I have it on vinyl record played by a Bundeswehr
band, and there are many renditions on-line and video. From elsewhere here in the Forum: it was an old Imperial German Army marching song from before World War I. But no particular branch of the Army is apparent.
Many seem to remember well the song's use as the main title of the musical score for the film Judgment at Nuremberg

If we become increasingly humble about how little we know, we may be more eager to search.

Ha, I've never thought about it, but now that you (they) mention it, it does sound böhmisch
Many European regions have been credited as the source of the melody though, but the oldest sources (known to me) usually also credited Bohemia.
