  1. I remember the Tatto on Wollaton Park. It was for the Coronation. I lined up with my Mum and saw QE2 and Phillip come down Derby Road in the Royal Roller and drive through a gate way that was made in the wall opposite the University playing fields so they could drive in. ( About 300 meters from Beeston Lane End, Gatehouse) I think you can still see the repaired brickwork. It's where the AA and RAC repair motorcycle and sidecars used to park and salute members who displayed their badges... ( Remember them?) . After the Tattoo we Abbey Kids spent hours searching for and collecting the discarded brass bullet and shell casings that hadn't been picked up. I remember the ferns being burned from the hole in the wall (Gate way) on Derby Road to make a path to Lime tree grove for the Queen to drive along. I think she must have officially opened the Tatto.
