EVEN after five weeks overseas and a 24-hour trip home, The Scots School Albury Pipe Band is already hoping for a Tattoo return.
The touring group flew into Albury Airport on Wednesday morning after performing in The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo and four competitions.
Pipe band co-ordinator Scott Nicolson said most things had gone to plan “other than some of our luggage didn’t arrive this morning”.
“We’ll just let the dust settle for a little while and then work out what we’ll do but I’d imagine the school will probably get back to the Tattoo in the near future,” he said.
Students from years 5 to 12 took part in the tour, with Mr Nicolson’s son Liam, 11, one of the youngest.
Liam said the band played well throughout the 25 Tattoo shows, despite early nerves and rehearsing in front of “big, tall, scary army guys”.
“The first official night when the Tattoo started, when everyone was there, it’s like, ‘Oh god, what do I do?’ because you’re shaking when you march on,” he said.
