And I know that a hogshead is a rather large barrel - would these be just random metal scraps?
Colour is the mode of address/reference for a Colour Sarjeant, the senior non-warrant NCO grade in the Royal Army.

porky-pies is historic Cockney Rhyming Slang. Make an English roll at TN 4- (Native is always full Charisma)

And yes, McPhee has Survey. He'll teach it to any PC who wants. And there will be XP at conclusion of chapter, so you'll have at least two tries if you try to learn it. And I said Cartography will have lower TN's, not that it's totally useless, for the kind of specialty gear in use.
