Scots soldiers have been embracing a change in regulation uniform - by sporting red noses for comic relief.
Troops in Edinburgh struggled to hold straight faces as they lined up for inspection wearing the fundraising noses.
An Army spokesperson said: "We have all had a great time showing our support for this cause, and the Army had a great laugh.
"We are all supporters of the work Comic Relief does and encourage everyone to do something funny for money this Red Nose Day."
Red noses cost £1 and are available online at rednoseday.com and from Sainsbury's and Oxfam.
