Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo
The Times, The Scotsman and The Glasgow Herald all report on the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo, with particular focus on how service women have gathered to celebrate 100 years of women in the Armed Forces. The coverage notes that ahead of this year's final performance, there have been centenary celebrations for both the Women’s Army Auxiliary Corps and the Women’s Royal Navy Service.
Now in its 68th season, the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo concludes today, Saturday 26 August.
Defence Secretary Sir Michael Fallon said:
The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo represents all that is best in the UK’s Armed Forces – talented, professional, and engaging internationally with our global allies.
This Tattoo helps showcase our Armed Forces and has raised over £10m through its Charitable Trust, and it contributes £77m a year to the Scottish economy.
