Special award

Soldiers from the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards have become the first non professional musicians to win a Classical Brit award for their album Spirit of the Glen: Journey.

The recording was named Album of the Year and winning it was made more unlikely as it was recorded entirely while the soldiers were on the front line in Basra.

A mobile recording unit was used to make the album and if you listen very carefully the background noise of Basra can be heard.
