"Jake" was in use before the war, in Australia by drivers & others to indicate that the load and harness were secure and everything ready for a start.

Some contend that the term was introduced on the Western Front by the Canadians and that it is a relic of the French Revolution when the plotters were knwn as "Jaques 1", "Jaques 2" etc. in order to avoid detection.
