Edinburgh Military Tattoo 2017 - Act 1 - Entrance of The Massed Pipes & Drums 188,757 views •4 Aug 2017

Thursday 3rd August 2017 saw the preview of the Edinburgh Military Tattoo (photographers are in attendance on this evening)
I purchased a Section 6 seat which had an excellent view and afforded a very quick exit to follow the Massed Pipes and Drums down The Royal Mile.
This is the first act, The entrance of The famous Massed Pipes and Drums

Below, a public comment which I find very interesting and informative...

I am a 71-year-old Japanese.
I want to tell Japan and UK young people.
Japan and the UK were allies at the time of World War I approximately 100 years ago.

The Japanese Navy dispatched 17 war ships to the Mediterranean Sea from Japan to guard UK ships.

Then, in Malta, one ship of those was bombarded by German U-boats and sank, and 60 Japanese Navy soldiers died.

In those days, all of the young Japanese learned many UK folk songs in elementary school because they had goodwill towards the UK.
Thus, many Japanese still have homesickness toward UK folk songs.

The above is approximately 100 years ago now.

However, at the time of World War II, Japan and the UK became enemy countries.

Japan and the UK performed hard battles in Southeast Asia.
In a battle in Burma of the two countries, there is an anecdote that happened at a night.

The battle was in agglutination state, and the soldiers of the two countries were in a state of the fatigue.
At a certain night, somebody has begun to sing "the humble home" of the UK folk song.

Then it became the great chorus by soldiers of the two countries in a few minutes across the front of the battle.

Of course it goes without saying that Annie Laurie was included in the madrigals.

The singing of Annie Laurie by a female officer of the Japanese army in Edinburgh will remind of the impressive anecdote that occurred accidentally at a Burmese front at a night with approximately 73 years ago.

By the way, in other words, this anecdote is the true anecdote that happened in Burma before I am born when my father is still young.


Personally I was very interested and glad to read this.............as I myself have a Japanese aunt, and 2 half Japanese cousins, who are loved by our family... PEACE TO THE WORLD AND TO ALL PEOPLES LOVE AND RESPECT
