GLASGOW saluted its troops to mark Armed Forces Day.
Around 1000 serving members of the Royal Navy, the Army and Royal Air Force, as well as veterans and cadets from all services, paraded through the city to George Square on Saturday.
A fly-past featuring a squad of Royal Air Force Typhoon fighter planes from No 6 Squadron RAF brought the city centre to a standstill.
Lord Provost Sadie Docherty took the salute in her role as Lord Lieutenant.
Britain's Got Talent finalist Edward Reid, The X Factor's Hollie Burns, pipe bands and choirs provided entertainment.
The Helensburgh-based West of Scotland Military Wives Choir, who were inspired by the BBC TV show, also sang.
Armed Forces Day is different from the more sombre and reflective Remembrance Day, as it is about celebrating the military and its ties to the community.
Hundreds of events took place around the UK to mark the occasion, which was first marked in 2006 as Veteran's Day. In Plymouth Royal Navy frigate HMS Argyll led the celeb- rations.
