Couple of questions, why was the 2 ringer who led out the NEPTUNE (Brickwoods) Field Gun Crew wearing a kilt while in rig, and with a hoofin great hairy sporran to boot! Was this a 100% legal rig? If not, how did he get away with it?
Why was the Edinburgh Tattoo, with it's jingoistic Scottish themes, spared from the cuts when the Royal Tournament had to go, which had something for everyone?
Did enjoy the Dutch Mounted band on their bicycles, those crazy Dutch guys. I did spend a bit of time admiring the backside of one of the frauleins of the Alpine band (not the blonde one with the dodgy barnet). Why didn't the BBC bring us more of this?
The edinburgh militry tattoo is absolute CRAP .The saving grace was the royal marine band but ony cos of the evening hymm and sunset .I have never heared of most of the other knobbers .Bycycle F F SAKE i ask you
Just a thought, not the DS solution; the Royal Tournament was MoD owned and operated as a showcase for HMAF. The (Royal) Edinburgh Military Tattoo is a commercial enterprise in which HMAF have MoD approval to participate. The current state of the tattoo does raise the question, 'who put the tat in tattoo?'
