Norwegian winter too tough for British elite troops

SoldaterMore than 100 British elite troops have been sent home from winter exercises in Northern Norway.

Eighty of them were suffering from severe frostbites, while the rest had broken bones.

According to Mail on Sunday, the British Defence Department will have to check out if the British sleeping bags are warm enough to face a Norwegian winter.

However, lieutenant-colonel Lars Sundnes, Chief of Allied Training Centre North, finds no fault with the British equipment. But he believes that facing the winter in Northern Norway has been a tough experience, particularly for the most inexperienced soldiers.

The Allied Training Centre has been host for the 2300 British soldiers who are participating in the three-week-long exercise near Harstad.
