Civilians sampled a day in the life of a soldier when a Fife army base opened its gates to the public.
Leuchars Station open day brought people in their droves to Waterloo Lines, the home of the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards.
The station, formerly RAF Leuchars, is also home to eight other regular and reserve units, including 2 Close Support Battalion, Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers, 71 Engineer Regiment and the RAF Diversionary Airfield.
Children were able to dress up as soldiers and visitors young and old were able to handle some of the equipment and arms used by today’s forces.
There was a chance for people to test their mettle on a 100ft assault course.
Visitors also snapped up the opportunity to have their photographs taken with service men and women based at Leuchars Station, as they demonstrated some of their capabilities.
Military vehicles modern and vintage were on display, as was a fleet of supercars.
A programme of entertainment throughout the morning and afternoon included performances by the Pipes and Drums of SCOTS DG and the RAF and the Leuchars Military Wives Choir and combat and physical training displays.
