Teaching Flames of War

In my quest to learn Flames of War I am going to be teaching the game to two people in one day tomorrow. One I am driving out to and the other is stopping by at night to my place. I have made two lists, both around 630 points, to start out teaching. One is a British 50th Division "Tyne and Tees" list from Turning Tide and the other is a 326th Grenadier list from Earth and steel. I have no idea how they will work out but they are designed to teach a little of everything. The Brits have no armor and the Germans fit 3 STUG IIIg's into their list. However the Brits have two 6 pounders and a load of PIAT teams so that may even things out.

Below are the lists for perusal:
