Veterans in the Scottish Borders are being encouraged to get out and socialise at breakfast clubs meetings.

The events - organised by the local council - aim to get ex-service personnel together to promote comradeship and show what support is out there for those who have served in the military.

You can find your closest Veterans Breakfast Club on the Armed Forces and Veterans Breakfast Clubs website.
