Just stay safe, Harry.
And the same goes for all the soldiers in Afghanistan - British, American, Armenian and others.

I wonder if Harry will ever do a stint in The Falklands, keeping the Argentinians at bay :-)

If there were army operations in the Falklands, you may well see Harry there.

Well I'm guessing that's a singular honour he would be happy to have missed!

No, he's not an American, you can't have him. Harry is 100% Sloane.

It was no biggie - a rehash of a previous E show with some updates and lots of snaps from Las Vegas. But there was nothing new of note.

I do miss Harry's antics. I am sure he is giving his comrades many memories for them to cherish from Afghanistan. Bless him!

Prince Harry 'killed Taliban commander' in Afghanistan by firing Hellfire missile from Apache helicopter
Quote:
Apache co-pilot Prince Harry is reported to have killed a Taliban leader in a devastating airstrike in Afghanistan. The 27-year-old was called in to provide air support to troops tracking a commander level Taliban chief and hit the target with a 100lb Hellfire missile. It is the first time the Prince has been involved in a fatal airstrike against a Taliban commander, a report in The Sun said. The attack is said to have happened in late October, shortly after the prince returned to Afghanistan for his second tour of duty as gunship co-pilot.

A defence insider said: 'We were on patrol and the Apache helicopters were called in. We heard this posh voice come over the radio and knew it was Big H. They were tracking a Taliban leader - he was commander level.'
Way to go, Sun and DM. Publish this to make Harry even a greater target than he is now.
Love his army nickname though.

Love this, too. As for being a greater target now: I don't think this is possible. His death or capture would be the greatest coup for the Taliban for rather impersonal reasons, just because of who he is, what he represents. That he is there to fight against them in person should rather give them more respect for the man. Not that this would help him in any way if caught... But his being there is in itself the greatest provocation, not what he actually does.

OTOH it is important for the British people, for the military and not least for those serving beside him in Afghanistan that he is there and that there is information about his service available. I bet those soldiers who came in contact with this "posh voice" and were helped by the Apaches told the story of how the prince came to their rescue, not on a white horse in shining armour, but in the modern version of flying a shining helicopter. That's what fairy tales are made of and that's what soldiers fighting in a real war need: that for queen and country does mean something, that their Royals support them and even share their fate. So this terrible war situation at least emotionally makes some sense for them in a place and time where there in fact is no sense to be found at all.

It's the same thing when it is reported that William leaves his sick and pregnant wife behind to fly out to rescue "normal" Britons in bad winter weather. That's a good thing to know in these times of flooding, cold and austerity in Britain.
