A NADERA soldier serving with the British Army, Drummer Lepani Secake, 30, has been performing at this year's Edinburgh Royal Military Tattoo.
Drummer Secake serves with The Highlanders, 4th Battalion The Royal Regiment of Scotland (4 SCOTS) who are based in Germany.
According to a statement, his mother Sainimere Verevakadua still resides in Nadera.
He has two children — Iowane Secake, 6, and nine-month-old Jacob Secake.
The statement quotes Drummer Secake as saying: "The pipes and drums have been playing alongside a line-up of nearly 1000 performers including hundreds of musicians, pipers, drummers, singers and dancers during this year's Tattoo."
Drummer Secake, a former student of St John's College in Cawaci, added: "The theme of this year's event was a tribute to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth's Diamond Jubilee."
The 62nd extravaganza was staged at the Scottish capital's ancient Castle — a spectacular and inspiring backcloth for the internationally acclaimed event.
With innovative production, heart-stopping sound, imaginative graphics, state-of-the-art lighting and specially commissioned fireworks, the 90-minute show has captivated a huge cosmopolitan audience during its run.
"All members of the pipes and drums have really enjoyed performing at the Tattoo, and for me personally it has been a fantastic experience performing in front of a huge audience every night," Drummer Secake said.
Since enlisting in 2007, Drummer Secake has served in Canada, Germany, Australia, Iraq, and Afghanistan.
The Tattoo finishes at the weekend.
