Prince Harry to return to front line

Prince Harry will return to Afghanistan after qualifying yesterday as a front line Apache attack helicopter pilot.

The 27 year-old, who spent 10 weeks as an infantry soldier in Helmand in 2008, will join a unit which has the highest “kill rate” of any serving in Afghanistan.

Royal sources said he was looking forward to “doing his duty” after completing a gruelling 18-month training programme which culminated in him finishing top of his class and being declared “limited combat ready” yesterday.

Once the Prince has completed pre-deployment training with his squadron he will be classed as fully “combat ready”.
Read the rest here.

Not sure I would have advertised this until after he completed his front line tour. But I applaud his sense of duty.
