Gracious and enthusiastic help was provided by all, but special mention to:
Alan Humphries at the Thackray Museum Leeds.
Emma-Kate Lanyon at Shrewsbury Museum.
Barry Reading for doing the video.
After a hiccup on the first shelf, we managed to count 359 certified ear trumpets, in 5 bays.
29 were quarantined by Alan and I based on our knowledge of fakes and the Guinness use of the Wikipedia definition.
Thank you to all - a super lunch and an almost error free event !
