Bobby Sands, Francis Hughes Badges August 2, 2010

A Bobby Sands and Francis Hughes Badge issued I presume around the time of the Hunger Strike in 1981.
There was much paraphernalia like this available at the time.
Also an Anti Nazi Badge.
Many thanks to the sender (who is also doing a sponsored cycle for Temple Street and sponsorship details are on his Blog).

    I remember collecting the badges in the series the Hughes one is from. He and McElwee were from just up the road so I had 2 or 3 of them but could never get any of O’Hara, Lynch or Devine. Wonder were the INLA men left out or was it just coincidence. Certain I still have them somewhere.
