We attended the Edinburgh Tattoo in 1997 while on my wife’s first visit to UK and Europe. When I married her I always promised her i’d show her the world – didn’t know it would take 35 yrs and cost so much….lol !
This was one of the highlights of our overseas trips from new Zealand. The photograph shows the finale with massed bands from most of the Commonwealth countries including the New Zealand Police Pipe Band, the Gurkha Regiment plus many others. It was a magnificent, magical spectacle especially as can be seen, the mist began to swirl in over the battlements giving the most amazing atmosphere. Ten minutes after this photo was taken and the bands had march off, the lone Piper stood on the battlements playing to a completely hushed crowd ! Fantastic ! Never seen anything like it before or since.
