What is a "full tour" for British troops? U.S. troops' tours usually last for 12 to 16 months.

Anyone have an inkling of what William will do after they disband his SARS unit?
By the time that happens he will have left the forces. He is supposed to leave in 2013 and the moving of the SAR to civilians is slated to happen in 2015. I wouldn't be surprised if William stays in the SAR until it ends though.

A full tour for British troops is 6 months I believe. I have heard this cited as the reason why the rate of PTSD is so much lower among British troops returning from Afghanistan than it is for US troops.

For some reason I had the idea that the MOD would be up front and open about Harry being in Afghanistan this time. Surely as a helicopter pilot he would spend the vast majority of his time either in the air or back at an extremely well secured base. As he wouldn't be on foot patrol this time the chances of anyone getting at him would be much, much lower. I could be wrong though. I just don't think a media blackout would work this time.

There is no reason to expose him when the MOD is up front about Harry's deployment. Seeing as this time the talk of him going to Afghanistan has been made public rather than kept secret, is evidence that Harry wants to go without the cloud of secrecy.

Has there been a bona fide missive from the MOD regarding his deployment? No, they don't give information on individual soldiers. Harry has said he wants to go, but that's no guarantee he will go. If he does go, I won't know if he's flying a helicopter or peeling potatoes. Fly an Apache and become a great target. Honest to goodness, I don't know how he can be a helicopter pilot of any kind with no math skills.

I'm not trying to run down his reputation, simply stating the obvious.

You seem to be under the impression that Harry "being a target" was the problem. Well it was as in as much it is to any soldier, but the concern was that Harry was a prime target and that upped the danger level for those he served with on the ground. That is why he rebranched within the Army to the Air Corps having serendipitously discovered he has a knack for flying. As to his endangering others as a helicopter pilot, well I believe that Apache Helicopters are prime targets in and of themselves so it is status quo!

I think it would be obvious to everyone that he does not have to take his shoes off in order to count past 10! Wherever did you get the idea he had no maths skills? He wouldn't even have graduated from Sandhurst if he was that bad, or are you one of those that subscribes to the theory that someone else has taken his exams for him all his life?

Apart from your curious statement that you don't know if he's flying a helicopter or peeling potoatoes? I must be thick as a 4x2 because I'm damned if I know what was "the obvious". Care to elucidate?

C'mon, Marge, he had to drop geography and didn't even take any math courses. At Sandringham, if the majority pass; they all pass.

As yes, I would care to elucidate. Harry's duty (what, when, where) will have to be kept as secret as possible; therefore, he could be flying helicopters or he could be peeling potatoes.

Hope no further elucidation is required.

Well since he is a helicopter pilot that would seem to suggest he does have math skills. One need not have a PhD in mathmatics.

There is no way that the MOD is going to allow Harry to fly a very, very expensive Apache unless he is an exceptional pilot...which he must be. I would also think that to fly one of those things with all those controls in front of you, you have to have a few smarts.

Prince William chatted with her only briefly before walking away and Harry tried to ignore her sexy dance, according to witnesses - a good thing too, as his girlfriend Chelsy Davy was there.

No doubt about that. That one has a great deal of charisma.

When did this happen? While Harry was in the U.S? And she must've really wanted to be noticed and yet did she know they were both taken?
