Thanks for leading to the picture. I saw it and it makes one proud to see him advance in his training. Always read he was a good shot.

All oc's have to do training for shooting. There are many parts they have to pass, Deliberate Fire, Grouping, Time Limit, Snap. To pass the marksman 'test' you have to be good at all disciplines. For instance in Grouping the idea is to fire all the rounds into the smallest diameter, Deliberate Fire - the target is marked with concentric scoring rings. The shooter aims at the centre of the target with the intention of placing the shot as near to the centre as possible, the nearer the centre the higher the score.
When it comes down to the wire the difference can be as little as 96/120 for a skilled shot or 100/120 for a marksman.

Nothing as taxing for the marksman qualification here for oc's.

9mm Browning Pistol and the SA80 are the 2 weapons involved at this stage. There are many shooting qualifications he will be able to train for, some compulsary, some voluntary.

Harry can of course retake his 'test' at any time but, I would think he is more involved in using the 'big stuff' at the moment. Just because he didn't get the marksman grade while at RMAS, doesn't mean he is a rotten shot. The wind could have been bad that day, he might have been having an off day, all sorts of reasons.

Does anyone know if William at Belmoral or Sailing with 11 other and an instructor in the Mediterranean?
Why haven't there been any pics of him since the passing out Parade?

Probably because whatever he is doing is in his private time and therefore no one has taken any photos.

Whereever he is he is entitled to time without photos being taken for publication all the time.

The parade was only last week and this is the RF's normal summer holiday time.

Is he sailing for Advengerous training? Like some articles said he would start on Aug 11 I guess after the Parade. I am starting to think is at Belmoral with his family.

I think the key words from that story are 'Private Estate'.

A slightly different take on the 'un-named source' or 'close friend', this time it's 'English earwitness'

Must be a slow news weekend in Australia. Today's Sydney Sun-Herald featured a photo of William on the front page with the comment, "Princes of the Night. Looking tired and untidy, Prince William leaves a London nightclub at 3am after another long night of partying with his brother, Harry. The royal brothers are refusing to surrender to the public's expectations of more regal behaviour on their part." Full story by Annabel Crabb and more pictures on page 7.
http://www.smh.com.au/articles/2006/...html?from=top5 (May need to register - quick and no fee)

The pictures of William aren't reproduced on the web site, but he looks sloshed and half asleep. Harry just looks tired. No pic of Kate.
