War veteran Tom Gilzean recalls laying a poppy for his brother

A war veteran who has died at the age of 99 spoke to the BBC a number of years ago about the brother he lost in the war.

Tom Gilzean recalled taking a single poppy and laying it at commemorations in Edinburgh to remember his 18-year-old sibling.

Mr Gilzean was a prolific fundraiser who collected more than £1m for good causes.

A book of condolence has been opened at Edinburgh City Chambers to mark his death.
