The Central Orchestra of the General Staff of the Mongolian Armed Forces had a day trip to Hawick today to see where a lot of the cashmere from their 30 million goats ends up.
Here a young Mongolian woman poses on top of the broad shoulders of the athletic Borderer, William of Rule, ancestor of the Turnbull clan. The camp followers included throat singers and acrobats.
Seen here serenading in front of Cornucopia's Hawick office, the Mongolian military band will be taking part every evening in the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo (9pm, August 2 – 24).
