Armed Forces members: 'Pressure and privilege' to escort the Queen's coffin

Military personnel have been reflecting on "playing a part in history" during the Queen's coffin procession through Edinburgh.

The duties have brought "a lot of pressure but it's also such a big privilege", according to Colour Sergeant Ross Miller from 3rd Battalion The Royal Regiment of Scotland.

"This is one of the biggest events that's happened in the last hundred years, not just for myself but especially for some of the younger guys," he said. "They know they're playing a part in history."
