Tribute to war hero father

US radio presenter Rita Cosby is pictured in Edinburgh as she visits the country that gave her father the promise of a new beginning after he escaped from a prisoner of war camp.

Warsaw Uprising hero Ryszard Kossobudzki - or Richard Cosby, as he became - arrived in Glasgow towards the close of the Second World War. He died in 2012. Ms Cosby, guest of honour at the first Outstanding Pole in Scotland Awards set up to celebrate the countries' relationship, has told his story in a best-selling book.
