Hi Mack,
The talk went better than I'd expected.  Thankfully I'd bored everyone I know with dry runs, so the delivery was ok.
The audience was pretty thin on the ground but all engaged, including the regional CWGC lady.  I think we may get more interest in that avenue.
I've been asked back for a repeat with the Air Cadets in 9th Bn's former HQ.  Hopefully we'll have some new grave photos to show them.
The archives staff are great and even let my wife and dog attend.

Thanks Mack,
We put a lot of work into the non-comms research and I didn't want to let them down.
