Jordan’s Armed Forces at the Edinburgh Military Tattoo



We really, really need to see more of Jordan’s marching bands locally.

Imagine if all the beautiful things you see in this march like the attention to detail, orderliness, celebration of cultural differences within Jordan, etc. became a part of every Jordanian.

  3. A most impressive display. And a cute coincidence. The manuscript which is my current ‘work in progress’ is set in 2016, on the eve of Scottish independence! Just yesterday I wrote a scene set on the last night of the Tattoo in August 2015!
