The image was part of a project looking at a veteran who has been affected by war and is now adjusting to civilian life. Donald who was part of the Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders where he witnessed friends, colleagues and civilians killed by war. This image is taken at Donald's home to highlight that he is a regular person like everyone else, except he now carries the burdens from past events as a solider. The project simply demonstrating that anyone can be affected by war and there should be more support available for service people.
