Relatively successful meeting with 25 or so present and members from outside London. Members will be glad to hear that among those there was Danny Lambert, his first reappearance since his accident.
The talks were recorded. Unfortunately it was the day of the Lord Mayor’s Show and the militarist music of the drum and flute bands as they marched down Fleet Street might be audible in the background.
Unfortunately I could do very little about the appalling outside noise. All the sound is on one ‘track’, as it were, so reducing the intrusive noise just meant reducing the speakers talks as well. It’s Bill’s and Paddy’s that were especially affected, with a 7 mins chunk of Paddy’s being particularly bad. The last two talks are better quality audio overall.
