Musical pillow for soldiers
"AS EVERY SOLDIER knows, getting a decent night's sleep in a war zone can be hell. But now the Danish army has been given the perfect remedy ' the Musicure pillow. It is good to keep the noise out of my mind It has built'in speakers to lull insomniacs to sleep with bird song and acoustic music.

If it works, designers say it could join rifles, flak jackets and helmets as basic army equipment.

The 340 Danish soldiers are in Kosovo as part of the NATO peacekeeping force and nowhere is tension highest than in Kosovska Mitrovica, where the squadron is based.

The pillows, part of a trial that started a month ago, are already proving a hit.

One soldier said: 'It is good to keep the noise out of my mind.'

Although originally intended for psychiatric wards, the pillows are ideal for soldiers who cannot use sleeping pills since they must be constantly be on stand-by.


I think they should have them playing decent martial music throughout the night, so that you wake in a suitable patriotic and Regimental state of Mind :)
