MEMBERS of the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo have welcomed the latest arrival to the capital’s port – the ARC Gloria, a historic Colombian tall ship built by the nation’s navy in the 1960s.

The vessel is one of the largest ships of its kind still in service, and will stop at Ocean Terminal for a four-day public visit.

The ship has a crew of 150, including 67 final-year cadets from the Colombian Naval Academy. Picture: Jane Barlow
