Chris Matheson MP has commended Navy personnel for their work in the Arctic Circle following a visit to a military base in Norway through the Armed Forces Parliamentary Scheme.

Chris has taken part in a number of events which give MPs the chance to experience military life and see first-hand the work done by personnel, and recently spent a week at Royal Norwegian Air Force Station Bardufoss. During the visit, Chris accompanied marines on their duties, including a night out in the field and inspection of facilities.

Chris said: “I was hugely impressed by the commitment of the personnel I met in Norway. Our hardworking servicemen and women are a vital presence in this region, standing against many threats in a very harsh environment.”

“Seeing them carry out their duties in temperatures as low as -15 degrees was a real inspiration, and I am grateful to them not just for allowing us to join them to experience their environment first-hand, but also for their dedication and service all year round.”
