A rider pauses during an open-air dedication of remembrance as he takes part in the Flodden Border Relay in Kelso, southern Scotland September 5, 2013. Riders took part on horseback in relays between Border towns, carrying a flag during an event to commemorate the 500th anniversary of the Battle of Flodden, a bloody defeat of the Scottish by the English that took place in 1513, claiming thousands of lives. Signs of ancient conflict - from centuries-old fortifications to historic battlefields - score the landscape around the English-Scottish border. But many living in the region lead lives straddling both sides, and express practical concerns about the possibility of a more formal split between the two nations in the event of a yes vote in next year's referendum on Scottish independence, which will be held on September 18, 2014.
