    Royal Tournament Petition

    The Royal Tournament was the highlight of the year for many service and civilian families from 1880-1999 when it was performed for the last time at Earls Court. The current petition on the Number 10 website to reinstate the Royal Tournament has not received a huge amount of publicity, it closes on 19th January 2008 and has 742 Signatures (23:50 11/02/0.

    If anyone has a minute to sign the petition, please follow this link: http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/RoyalTournament/ please pass on the link to anyone who might be interested in adding their name.

    Or if you can’t remember the Royal Tournament or weren’t lucky enough to see it, take a look at some of the videos on YouTube: http://youtube.com/profile?user=Militarytattoo

    Many thanks!

    Re: Royal Tournament Petition

    I'm going to sign this, but, just one point. Isn't the cancellation a combination of cash and too many deployments for it to be carried out successfully? I'd rather there was no tattoo than a half arrsed one.

    I'm generally the first to stick up for traditions but if the traditions are dumbed down then I'd rather they were shelved in the interim.

    I shall now keep my head down awaiting a royal flaming.

    Re: Royal Tournament Petition

    All valid comments but, what the petition is trying to do is remind people that a replacement was promised: http://edmi.parliament.uk/EDMi/EDMDe...97&SESSION=875 that has not materialised. If anyone else has a chance to add their name, please do.

    Many thanks

    Re: Royal Tournament Petition

    The RoyalTournament.org website is part of a project to keep alive the traditions of the Royal Tournament which was the first, oldest and biggest Military Tattoo in the World until its demise in 1999.

    We are now conducting an independent survey to gauge the opinions of the general public on the Royal Tournament. The results of the survey will be published on the RoyalTournament.org website later this year.

    We will also forward the results to the authors of the MOD Report of the Inquiry into: National Recognition of our Armed Forces (Published May 200.

    Please help us to promote the survey by forwarding the link to your friends, family, colleagues and anyone else that remembers the Royal Tournament.

    Follow the link to take the survey: RoyalTournament.org Survey

    Tact is for people who aren't witty enough to be sarcastic.
