Paul (45) served with the 1st Battalion Royal Scots between 1993 and 2000, seeing tours in Bosnia and Northern Ireland and receiving medals.

Daughter Shannon (19) said: “He has a lot of respect for the NHS, carers and all key workers for the amazing job they are all doing so wanted to take part.

“He played Scotland the Brave while people in our street were clapping.

“I’m a support worker in the community which gives him someone to cheer for. His message to everyone is stay at home, save lives and help the NHS.”T
