Thread Name: The Mero (explanation wanted)
Subject: RE: The Mero (explanation wanted)
I read the following article in the Irish Times, and it prompted me to google "The Mero" and I found this thread.

"Bang Bang" was a guy called Thomas Dudley, born 1906 and died in 1981. Now finally honoured with a monument at his resting place. I was aware of Bang Bang before now, but not the song The Mero.
