Video: NATO troops swap army rations
Five NATO troops from Denmark, Estonia and the United Kingdom compare ration packs.
Commonly referred to as 'Meals Ready-to-Eat' or MREs, each NATO Ally has its own unique approach to fuelling their soldiers when deployed. While the UK packs include tea and flapjack, Danish soldiers are given tightly sealed packs of mackerel fish.
Footage of soldiers sitting in a controlled environment eating hot and cold rations while discussing the merits and drawbacks of each other's food. It was filmed at NATO's enhanced Forward Presence Battlegroup in Tapa, Estonia (before the COVID-19 pandemic).
