"Coldstream Guards, 10 Years in Afghanistan, Guardsmen's Stories"

This new book relates details of Prince Harry's time in Afghanistan.

When deployed to Helmand, at age twenty-three, Prince Harry was sitting chatting with fellow officers - before the "evening scoff" of Gurkha curry - when a Chinese made 107mm rocket hit their battalion camp.

Seargeant Tom Pal, Captain Russell and the Prince just looked at each other - then hit the body armour and helmets.

Yes, Harry was quite near when rockets exploded several times on that first tour of duty. Which is why people believing stories of him always being kept away from active duty and danger amuse me. It's clear from those serving with him that this wasn't so.
