Harry O Lyr Req: Hughes' Bakery Van (17) Hughes' Bakery Van 07 May 99

About thirty years ago, vans belonging to this famous - now defunct, alas - Belfast bakery were pressed into service during the very beginning of the Troubles as makeshift "armoured cars". the song was very funny in a macabre sort of way. There was reference to "We fired Hughes' baps and we fired Hughes' rolls..." Deadly missiles indeed !! Only those who partook of the said confections would appreciate the irony. Harry O
