Cartav...........The BBC production was reasonable but not a patch on the real thing.It only showed about half of the action and i think with too much emphasis on the bands.(I hate the pipes)
It was nice to see the field gun race but again was nothing like what was done at the royal tournament (It was dry the night i was there)
I used to enjoy my visit to the tattoo but it losing it`s appeal a bit now
Sad Sleep

Unlike you, Gordon, I think the pipes are great.

As for the Edinburgh tattoo, I'm with Billy Connolly on that aspect of Scottishness. Those men dressed like "something off a f . . . biscuit tin", it's too obviously part of the tourist industry for me.

How come they stopped the Field Gun Race a few years back, only to half resurrect it again ?

Maybe you should ask for an Authentication Check.

How about President Salmond ?

The other night he was on the news, being statesman-like about that nice Lockerbie bomber chappie.

Not only did he have a saltire pin on his lapel but his tie was covered in them too.

There must be a lot of heavily subsidised Jocks in Westminster sweating on the independence. I mean, they won't be able to stay on, will they ? (Will they ? affraid ).

Used to enjoy my oats............. it's been a cold, frustrating summer.

But with you on SNP Gordon. Sqn did a MACC task up north one year (Mil. Aid to Civil Community ), had a great time building a playground for under-privileged kids. As usual evenings were free, went into town for a bevy or three. Instead of taking the long way round the houses we made a short cut through a dance hall where the SNP would hold a rally an hour or so later. Officials on the door stopped me......... I gathered I was unwelcome.

Didn't like my accent, don't you know, what ? You've seen those Nazi gatherings in Nuremburg...... I felt like a Jew straying into one of those. Scary......

Ah well, you've got me there Gordie, mate, I've never been to Waverley station, much less Edinburgh I'm afraid.

(Hey, Edinburg, is that near Scaatland buddy ?).

Independance will not happen ,,,,unless England kick us out of the union.
Brum ... Waverly station has pipers 24/7. They do it in shifts and make a small fortune posing for pics with naive tourists. Sad

Well said Sir !

Rest assured, England would never kick the Scots out
(Unless they'd been VERY naughty, of course !).

Yes, I can how that would be quite stomach-churning.

I like it when the TV show clips of Regimental pipers that are playing while other men of the regiment dance around swords.

Massed bands, back to barracks & Black Bear, that's the stuff !

But imagine you're in Glencoe, alone in a bivvy. You've spent a tuneful evening
in the Clacchan pub, singing about how Mel Gibson & the lads put one over on
proud Edward's army, and being regaled by a local, not unlike the lugubrious Fraser in Dad's Army, who recalled how the Campbells slaughtered Shelldrake's forbears
not 50 yards from where your tent is pitched.

It's coolish, misty. Above the gurgling of the trout stream, there's a faint wailing
like some soul in torment. On the edge between drunken slumber and wide awakeness, that brings on cold shivers. It's only some busker tuning up before taking post in one of the lay- bys on the main road. But that's scary !

While I often fantasise that I would go to somewhere where a Digger called Mel Mc Gibson launched his bunch of rather nice chaps against the army of an Irish bloke called King Peter O'Toole, and doss down in a tent, the reality is I'm too old for that sort of malarkey.

One thing that WOULD entice me into a bivvy though is the subject of John Boy's latest offering.

To quote Viz magazine, . . . PHWOOAARR ! Cool
