British troops train to fight in Norway's forests during Exercise Trident Juncture

British troops train to fight in Norway's forests during Exercise Trident Juncture

A soldier from the Duke of Lancaster's Regiment conducting FIWAF (fighting in woods and forests) training in Norway as part of Exercise Trident Juncture.

Ahead of a week-long live exercise, the soldiers adapted to the harsh climate of Norway by training to overcome the extreme low temperatures.

These light role infantry troops formed part of the UK-led multinational brigade as part of NATO's biggest collective defence exercise in over a decade.

Exercise Trident Juncture sees NATO and partner nations training and operating together in an Article 5 scenario, 'an attack on one is an attack on all'.

For almost 70 years, the principle of collective defence has been at the very heart of NATO. It remains a unique and enduring principle that binds its members together, committing them to protect each other and setting a spirit of solidarity within the alliance.
