Scottish soldiers have celebrated St Andrew's Day in Afghanistan with a bagpipe salute outside their base.

Piper Kevin Glover, of The Royal Highland Fusiliers, 2nd Battalion, The Royal Regiment of Scotland (2 SCOTS), marked the day near Camp Qargha.

Cpl Glover, from Palnackie, in Dumfries and Galloway, is on his third tour of Afghanistan.

2 SCOTS deployed to Kabul in July in support of Nato operations to advise Afghan security institutions.

The deployment is part of the UK's commitment to provide training to help the government and its own police service defend itself.
