Lastringe Storpolska

I learned this tune from Helicon’s recording Horizon. It’s a Swedish polska so I uploaded it as a mazurka for proximity. It seems to also be known by the name "Yet another soldier’s joy":

Could this be the origin of the famous "soldier’s joy"?

I’ve noticed the similarities between this Swedish polska and the famous hornpipe https://thesession.org/tunes/1356. Does anyone have any clues?
