I believe the Gordon Highlanders 14-18 re-enactment group will be there. Say hello to them, they're a friendly bunch.

The number who attended was small but they seemed to enjoy the talk. It took 20 mintutes and there were no questions but I did have one enquire about a Tyrie man on my database, which I managed to give info and say there was a photo of him in the local paper.
