Piper faces his toughest test

HE IS used to piping for troops in Afghanistan, Iraq and Bosnia, but Corporal Andy Reid says he faces one of his biggest challenges yet tomorrow – performing at a Burns Supper for children at the Capital's Waterfront Nursery.

The piper with The Highlanders, 4th Battalion, Royal Regiment of Scotland, said: "I've been in the army for nearly ten years and, without doubt, this is one of the toughest challenges I've had to face."
