Yes, Andrew would have had guards protecting in some way, it would been easier since he flew a helicopter.
I remember reading part in a book about when prince charles first started in the navy. He did not have anyone protecting him because they felt his co-workers would watchout for him. then one night someone knocked on his door, and tried to attack him. After that they thought it best to have a protection officer of some sort. Does anyone Know if there is any truth to that story?

I think it unlikely that Andrew had anyone protecting him in a war zone. The only protection he would have had, was the knowledge that you look after your own people.
I havn't been able to find anything on Charles being attacked, if it was true, I'm certain it would have made the headlines. Perhaps someone else has details.

I know that Andrew talked about lying on the deck of his ship while Argentinian planes flew overhead, so he was in danger, and if he had had guards, they really couldn't have done anything about it to protect him.

It depends if you are the one throwing the potatoes or getting hurt by it.

He is going to receive further training with the Reconnaissance Division, with the hope of becoming a Troop Leader.

All Household Cavalrymen are dual trained; on horseback and in the formation reconnaissance role. All Household Cavalrymen are dual trained; on horseback and in the formation Reconnaissance troops on reconnaissance role.(or 'Recce' as they are more commonly known) As a Recce soldier you will normally work in a troop of 12 men and can be expected to spend long periods of time self-contained and on occasions behind enemy lines. Patience, nerve and cunning are essential characteristics of the recce soldier. The information you gather will help the commander decide what forces are needed to defeat the enemy.
This means Prince Harrry will train in both mounted training and recce.

The training he will do when he passes out will be solely in reconnaissance, after what is normally a 2 year stint, he may then be trained in the mounted division. As an officer he would normally be given a choice. The ordinary cavalrymen get no choice and go where they are sent.:)
