Dressing downs rarely happen to officers, young or old. A few years ago, a group of young officers 'took' a micra from the car park one night (I believe it belonged to a private) and put it on the table in the officers mess. The only thing they had to do was get it removed and ensure it was in working order and undamaged. As there was no damage to another person, it was seen as young officers letting off steam.

From my experience of the miltary, there will have been no telling off, just a friendly word to try to keep it quiet in future, ie change nightclubs.

Commanders reportedly had reconsidered their decision to allow the prince to fight in Iraq for fear he would become a target of insurgents and his presence could endanger other soldiers. Harry's regiment, the Blues and Royals, is due to begin a six-month tour of duty in Iraq within weeks.
Way To GO!! You are going to Iraq Harry.

And when he gets his head sliced off in front of the world's media, I hope Mr Blair and Mr Bush can have some respite from seeing his face everytime they close their eyes.

So do I but there's no denying that this is playing into the hands of terrorists. I love Harry, I love his family and I pray to all the Gods you like that he'll be safe. But this is a mistake IMO. A big mistake. And it can only end in sorrow and heartache.

I don't think it is a good idea for him to go to war. First of all there is such a negative impact now on the war that many people have switch sides and think the war is no longer needed. Secondly, if it is true that they have received threats of kidnapping the prince, this should ring a bell. Such things should not be taken lightly and yes it can endanger his comarades. He can be considered as a target now for these people. Very sad indeed!

He is being called a bullet magnet (among other things) on all of the Forces Forums. Many of the relatives support forums are also on overload with editing and deleting keeping the moderators very busy.

It is WHAT Harry wants to do? You have to think about his feelings as well.

No you don't. He's a soldier. He's told where to go. He isn't in charge. Other people are and those people must be damn mad to send him into almost certain death.

I have to agree with BeatrixFan here. It isn't about personal choice, if it was, then the 100's of other personel he will put at risk would also be able to have their feelings taken into account! I'm sure the last thing most of them want is to be put in further danger.

I agree that this is a mistake. But, in reference to getting his head sliced off, I hope not. I do not care for the war or for the players in the war. But, I do respect Harry's desire to go. Or, he will always carry about him a feeling of emptiness in fighting a war that he was trained to do. It is not my desire to see anyone off to war. It is a senseless occupation. A poor reason to decrease the population and try out new weaponry that has been designed for disagreements. However, I'm behind Harry 100%. According to the latest articles on his going away party, he is jittery. I would be to. In fact, he is much braver than I, as I would be plotting a way to stay in jolly ole England rather than play in the Iraqi sandbox.

Just as Prince Edward VIII who wanted to fight. In the end, he was not allowed. Harry should read what is being said in the papers by the insurgents. He will not be safe. He needs to approach his commanding officer and stress the dangers that he is going to face as he will be the target. Enough of the machoism.

He had good intentions. Action packed movies also help young men excited with "killing" and "destroying" the enemy. Harry is a Prince of England. He is bold, daring and loyal. A wonderful kind of man-boy spirit. The uniform, the military life and all that goes with it gets the adrenaline pumping. That's why he joined. He wanted to fight like the battles in the movies. And, on his Playstation war games.
