Well of course they are. After all Harry is the Entire Army isn't he?

Looks like he might be sent after all. If the article is true, I hope he and his people will be safe. I am glad they are not depriving him of his right, duty and wish to serve for his country, but I just hope the laser suit Prince Harry will be wearing will not need to send any signals.

Prince Harry gets battle ready for overseas duty

It seems that Prince Harry may after all catch all the action on the battlefield, for he is all set to be a part of the 1,000-strong battle group preparing for the new year deployment to Iraq or Afghanistan.

I'm sure you know that they only use the laser suit while practising! Wouldn't it be wonderful if all wars were fought with laser suits and not real weapons.

I have seen quite a few laser suits in the movies!
It would be wonderful if all laser was the only weapon - there would be need to worry about Prince Harry, any of the British men or anyone at all.

There was a Star Trek episode where the 'war' was fought with a computer. The computer would spit out the a person's citizen number and they had to report to a 'death chamber' where they killed. Perhaps, the laser suits may be a pre-emptive to the 'death chamber'. The question then becomes, will any royal member, such as Harry, be given a citizen number and if so it would make it somewhat hard for the 'enemy' to target Harry and a member of his unit, unless of course, for a computer hacker.

Taken from the Sun article posted by Karla64 in the Prince William Current Events thread Here

Harry fall scare

PRINCE Harry gave Army trainers a scare after falling from a tank during exercises.

He will only get time off for Remembrance Sunday, if it is his turn. He could be on duty at his barracks even if he is not involved in the local parade in the town.

100's of towns across the UK have their own parade to remember the dead of all the wars, as do the various forces bases.

Prince Harry really going to Iraq or Afghanistan?

According to this article, as we make an exception from where it's from, Harry may be heading overseas afterall. Guess I'm wrong about keeping him back in safe keeping. And, it appears that he may be going very soon. Naturally, I welcome your outstanding and at times very amusing comments.


Warrior Prince Harry so sombre

Well, we do know that some of the Blues and Royals will be going overseas and I think Harry will be going with them. If he is stopped from going, I think we will see a major explosion on the base from Harry Wales.

As for looking 'lost in thoughts' or being 'sombre', Remembrance Day is supposed to be about both. Remembering the horrific loss of life from all sides should be a sobering thought!

The poor fellow can't win. It's Remembrance Day, probably the most sombre occasion on the calendar! I'd be concerned about him if he was smiling.

We should be grateful that he didn't shut his eyes and do any contemplating!

Now, now, now! We know what happens to young men (and women) who close their eyes and contemplate ..... there's a heavy thud before they open them again.

I wonder if it's settled now that Harry will be going to Iraq.
