In the wake of the initial Normandy landings on D-Day, a strange vehicle hit the beaches: converted London buses driven by three female volunteers from the Red Cross. Their mission was to bring a taste of home to the soldiers fighting World War II. Their weapon of choice was the doughnut.
While their early food truck might have been a new contraption -- 100 GMC trucks dubbed “Clubmobiles” were created for the D-Day invasion -- the baked goods they were bringing to Hitler’s Fortress Europe was not. This was their second world war, too.
