Armed Forces Visit to Estonia

During the Christmas recess I joined the Armed Forces Parliamentary Scheme in visiting the UK’s contribution to NATO’s Enhanced Forward Presence in Estonia.


Bordering Russia, Estonia is home to a significant NATO presence, and we were briefed by the Estonian Ministry of Defence and NATO commanders.


We also met the UK’s Enhance Forward Presence Battlegroup to – comprised of none other than our very own Yorkshire Regiment, 2nd Battalion.


Even by our northern standards the conditions are freezing cold and incredibly testing, but they continue to a fantastic job.
