Yesterday, Wednesday 8th, a British and Belgian battle group from Blue Force blocked Yellow Force attackers pushing west through the south of our sector, reports Bob Morrison.

In the north of the sector, west of Sillamäe, Estonian Blue Force defenders, including the elite Eesti Scouts, valiantly slowed down Yellow Force mechanised infantry while the bulk of their brigade reformed to defend the key town of Jõhvi. The accompanying photos, all captured yesterday, will hopefully give you a brief insight of Exercise KEVADTORM 2019, but once the dust settles it is our intention to cover the bigger picture with a series of features.
