Dr Andrew Murrison, UK Defence Minister, visits troops in Estonia
UK Minister for Defence People and Families, Rt Hon Dr Andrew Murrison MP, has met with members of the Armed Forces during a visit to Estonia to personally thank soldiers for their work in upholding European security.
Dr Andrew Murrison also met Estonia’s Defence Minister Hanno Pevkur to discuss the UK’s commitment to protecting European security through our joint work to support the NATO alliance.
Troops based at Tapa Camp consist of the 1st Battalion Royal Regiment of Fusiliers alongside other units from the Royal Artillery and the Royal Engineers.
This is further bolstered by personnel located in the Estonian Defence Forces HQ in Talinn. The UK has been the Framework Nation for NATO’s enhanced Forward Presence mission in Estonia since 2017.
As part of Britain’s commitment to enhance the experience of its Armed Forces, the Minister reviewed improvements to camp facilities including the introduction of a NAAFI Welfare facility, improved catering options, entertainment, and an expanded training offer.
“I want to thank our Armed Forces, stationed in Estonia, who are on the frontline in reinforcing the NATO alliance. Their hard work and commitment is critical to protecting peace and reinforcing our commitment to Estonia.
