Soldiers from 2SCOTS will parade through the town centre of Penicuik today (Thursday).
The troops have just returned from a six month tour of Afghanistan.

The homecoming procession will set off from Tesco car park at 11.30am and make its way along Edinburgh Road and John Street to the High Street where HRH Prince Andrew will take the salute outside Penicuik Town Hall.

Last week the soldiers got their fundraising skills down to a T when they held a Big Brew Up event at Glencorse Barracks. The venture (above) raised £449.48 for SSAFA, the national armed forces charity.
