A piper from the Borders says he was very proud to play a key role in the memorial service for Neil Armstrong, the first man on the moon, which took place in Washington DC yesterday.
Angus Sutherland, who's from Kelso, but now lives in Washington was chosen to play at the start of the service.
Thousands of people gathered to say farewell to the astronaut at the city's national cathedral. Scotland's First Minister Alex Salmond had offered a piper for the service as Neil Armstrong traced his roots back to Langholm in Dumfries and Galloway.
