What's the origin of the phrase 'Rabbit and pork'?

'Rabbit and pork', which is often shortened just to 'rabbit', is a nice example of Cockney rhyming slang. The first citation in print that I can find is in the British writer Gerald Kersh's

wartime novel They die with their boots clean, 1941:

"He uses slang... Talk is Rabbit, or Rabbit-an'-Pork."
