A plaque has been unveiled in Belgium this afternoon to remember more than seven thousand soldiers from the Kings Own Scottish Borderers who died in World War One.

The ceremony was carried out close to the Belgian City of Ypres where some of the heaviest fighting of the war took place. The plaque has been added to the existing Scottish memorial. It's on a ridge that was captured by KOSB soldiers 100 years ago during the Battle of Passchendaele.

Silhouettes of soldiers were also unveiled, including two paid for by groups from the Borders.
