Tattoo 1967 was an outstanding success!

Tattoo 1967 was a military display that toured Canada from coast to coast as the Armed Forces contribution to Canada's Centennial Year in 1967. The Tattoo comprised 1700 performers from the three branches of the military and produced 140 shows across this country. The "show" was so well received there were calls to have it tour the US and Europe but the Prime Minister at the time vetoed the request and the Tattoo once it had finished its last performance, was mothballed and unfortunately, the "show" that thrilled and amazed thousands of Canadians all those years ago was relegated to memories. This web page rekindles those memories from 1967.

Thanks to the CBC and NFB for filming the Tattoo we have motion pictures to relive that wonderful show once again. read more>
