In February last year the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo performed at Sydney Cricket Ground, only the third time the Tattoo has been abroad in its 60 years history. As I was finishing 10 years as a Director and Trustee of the Tattoo, I was asked to join the production team in Australia. It was a memorable trip. The Tattoo was a spectacular success. The cast of 1000 playing to a total audience of nearly 100,000 over the 4 nights. The welcome we received was outstanding. I also supported the work of VisitScotland by representing the Standing Council of Scottish Chiefs at a presentation at a Scottish Memorial Cairn in Sydney.
