Soldiers from 4 SCOTS and 2 Close Support Battalion REME have gone into the ring for the very last Army boxing tournament to take place at Fallingbostel in Germany.
 
British units have been based in the north German town for 70 years but the final contingents there are returning to the UK this summer.
 
As Rob Olver reports, the last big fight was for a place in the semi-final of the Babcock Army Boxing Championships.
