1980 Edinburgh Military Tattoo 2It is probably not common knowledge that on March 22nd, 1978, the City of Vancouver “twinned” with the City of Edinburgh. The pipe band played for the honoured guests who included The Lord Provost of Edinburgh, the Rt. Hon. Kenneth Borthwick and the Lady Provost, Lady Borthwick. As a result of this contact, the band was honoured by being chosen to play at the Edinburgh Tattoo in 1980. At the time, this was the first performance at the tattoo by a British Columbia pipe band.
