Thanks skydragon. That's what I meant.

So now you agree that Edward VIII saw 'active combat duty' during WWI - he was in position where he could have been killed as a staff officer during the war.


He travelled around the support lines and the areas where he was were under artillery fire at times (remember that even London was bombed during WWI).


So now we are at the point where the most recent male heir to the throne during a war was on 'active combat duty'.

Remember that Charles didn't get the chance as he had left the navy by the time of the Falklands.

I did like Andrew's comments about his views on whether William and/or Harry would serve - yes they will he basically said.

Prince Harry, now in army, insists on front-line mission

LONDON (AFP) - Prince Harry is threatening to quit the British army if he is not allowed to join fellow soldiers in harm's way.
"If I am not allowed to join my unit in a war zone, I will hand in my uniform," he was quoted as telling senior officers before his passing-out from Sandhurst military academy, southwest of London, on April 12.

http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20060423...y_060423091913


Prince Harry: Send me to war or I quit

Prince Harry has threatened to quit the Army if commanders refuse to send him to the front line.
He told senior officers before recently passing out of Sandhurst as a Second Lieutenant: ‘If I am not allowed to join my unit in a war zone, I will hand in my uniform.’
The embarrassment for the Army caused by him quitting would be matched by uproar at the notion that while ordinary citizens are allowed to that their main problem is not whether Harry can take the pressure of coming under fire in action – but whether the lives of the men fighting alongside him will be more at risk because he is regarded as a ‘trophy target’ by insurgents

Let me fight or I quit, says Prince Harry

PRINCE Harry has threatened to quit the Army unless he is sent to the front line, it was reported today.
The Prince and his older brother, Prince William, have both previously made it clear they are determined to see active service with their units.

Well glad that he's determined to go and fight for his country like anyother soldier. I think he might go but it'll be a long time from now.

Just to add my coment on that war discussion:
I can't imagine that William woukld EVER be allowed to go as a a soldier into a region like iraq, he isn't even allowed to fly together with Charles in one plane. With harry, of course it is different.

I don't think that "fighting" was the reason for William to go to the army. In his position he simply had to do that. All male members in his family do so and he will be chief of the forces one day, won't he? He needs a military "deregree" (I know that's not the correct expresion) therfore.

Finally IMo it would be dangerous because of moral reasons, too. Specially in an area like Iraq - the danger that he might get his hands "dirty" is simply too big.

And a change in the line of success after william's death wouldn't be good for monarchy, too.

Just 2 of the reasons I think this story is rubbish.

As I am sure Harry is already well aware, no soldier, private or officer gets much say in where he is or is not sent.

He would resign his commission, not hand his uniform in!

Harry is not ordering them to send him overseas but is saying that if his unit were to get sent overseas that he would want to lead his men. He seems to be worried that that might not send him overseas with his men if his unit with his men.

This all on deployments if his unit/squad get called up then Harry should go overseas. No, I do not think that it is just talk but he would have to serve 3 years before he could resgin his commission.

We will have to wait for two years to see what Harry decides about his length of service.

If the powers that be don't want Harry to serve in one of these areas but would like him to stay in the army there is a simple solution - don't send his particular unit i.e. don't send the Blues and Royals to these places - send them on peacekeeping duties somewhere else or leave them at home.

He will then be unable to claim they wouldn't let him fight so easily - they wouldn't let any one in his regiment fight either.

He can resign his commission at any time, he just has to give notice and/or buy himself out.

All of this would have been discussed before he signed with the B&R's. You don't discuss a contract after you have signed it.:)

He'll probably be in it for the long haul like his uncle Prince Andrew. If Harry wants to go he should. The Queen made no exceptions when Prince Andrew went to the Falkland Islands (paraphrasing here: "He must go like everyone else." or something along those lines.)
