Good evening, and welcome to the six o'clock news.

Prince Harry has on the front line fighting in Afghanistan for 10 weeks. British media had agreed to keep his deployment secret for his safety and that of his comrades, but the deal broke down after an American-based website ran the story. The prince, the third in line to the throne has been on active service in some of the most dangerous parts of Afghanistan, he said he was proud to be serving his country. Under Good evening, and welcome to the six o'clock news.

Prince Harry has on the front line fighting in Afghanistan for 10 weeks. British media had agreed to keep his deployment secret for his safety and that of his comrades, but the deal broke down after an American-based website ran the story. The prince, the third in line to the throne has been on active service in some of the most dangerous parts of Afghanistan, he said he was proud to be serving his country. Under a deal with the Ministry of Defense Nick Rachel was allowed to film Prince Harry in action.

It's the deployment Harry had been hoping for to join British forces on active service, but which he was denied last year when his unit was sent to Iraq without him. But after a careful discussion which included meetings between defense chiefs and the queen, he was sent to Afghanistan shortly before Christmas. The BBC together with other British News organizations agreed not to report the deployment to safeguard his security and that of British forces with him.

Harry has been based in the southern part of Helmand Province in a former Taliban Madrasa which has been turned by the British into a forward operating base, a small military fortress close to an area where the Taliban are active. It's allowed Harry to realize his ambition and to experience life close to the frontline.

“All my wishes have come true. I was always hoping to get forward, um. The commanding officer was very sort of cool about it and said 'you know, this is where I want you to go' and obviously Mark the OC down here was willing to take that responsibility and I got here on Christmas Eve.”

"Over five six, roger, a five times EF enemy force data…… "

Harry's been with a Gurkha regiment who have been coming under attack from the Taliban on a daily basis.

The British positions are easy targets, but in this landscape the Taliban are very much harder to spot, let alone to engage.

"Up on the right, en, still go? Yeah, you should go on, Sir.”

"A lot of the time the guys are engaging sort of invisible firing points because the Taliban are very good at hiding in their trenches. they poke their heads up and that's it. And then if the guys are coming under a lot of fire then I call the air in and as soon as the air comes up they disappear and just jump down these holes or go into their bunkers. "

Harry's specific role is that of a tactical air controller or J-tac , calling up aircraft on bombing missions in support of ground forces. Much of the work is done from inside 45 positions, huddled over a video screens showing images of possible targets and in touch with ally pilots by radio.

"Yeah, Roger, have you back is to confirm you're not going back or you're going back."

But as a tactical air controller, Harry also goes out on foot patrol.

"It's when you're on the ground carrying all the kit and you come under contact, you have to type in the password if your computer's not on the ready, flip it open, get on the radio, get the jets in and you almost become like a bit of an air traffic controller. You've got jets flying all over the place."

Harry's admitted that the decision last year not to send him to Iraq caused him to reconsider whether an army career was feasible, now he appears to be more settled.

"It's very nice to be sort of a normal person for once, I think this is about as normal as I'm ever going to get. The Gurkhas, you know they are just so friendly, looking after me. Obviously they're all fully aware what the situation is and always keeping an eye open for me and then everyone else just gets on with their daily life. There are bigger things going on in the world, and going on outside there on the frontline rather than you know worrying about 'Oh look, look who's here'.”

And Harry says he is not missing life back at home.

“What am I missing the most, I should have thought about that before this started. Em, I don't know actually. Nothing really, it's bizarre, I'm out here now,I haven't really had a shower for four days, I haven't washed my clothes for a week and everything seems completely normal. So, yeah, I don't honestly  know what I miss at all. You know,Music, we've got music. We've got light, we've got food, we've got drink, no, I don't miss booze, if that's the next question. It's very nice just to be here and be with all the guys and just sort of mucking in as one of the lads.”

For the solider prince who prior to his deployment was showing signs of frustration of not being allowed near a frontline, this trip maybe something of a turning point.

"Now I've come out here I think it has proved the point that if it's done the right way and kept quiet in certain areas then it can be done and as far as I'm concerned I'm out here as a normal J-tac on the ground and not Prince Harry.”

For his family, like the families of all those servicemen and women in Afghanistan and Iraq it will be a time of some anxiety until he returns.

Good evening and welcome to the 6 o'clock news.

 

Prince Harry has on the frontline fighting in Afghanistan for 10 weeks. British media had agreed to keep his deployment secret for his safety and that of his comrade. But the deal broke down after an American-based website rammed the story. The Prince, the 3rd in line to the throne has been on active service in some of the most dangerous parts of Afghanistan. He said he was proud to be serving his country. Under deal with the Ministry of Defense, Nick Rachael was allowed to film Prince Harry in action.

 

It's the deployment Harry had been hoping for to join British forces on active service but which he was denied last year when his unit was sent to Iraq without him. But after careful discussion which included meetings between Defense chief and the queen, he was sent to Afghanistan shortly before Christmas. The BBC together with other British news organizations agreed not to report the deployment to safeguard his security and that of British forces with him. Harry's been based in the Southern part of Helman Province, in a former Taliban / which has been turned by the British into a fall operating base. A small military fortress close with area with the Talibaner active, it's allowed Harry to realize his ambition and to experience life close to the frontline.

 

"All my wish has come true. I was always hoping to get forward. And the commanding officer was very sort of cool about it and said yet I, this is what I want you to go. I'm / marked. They'll see / was willing to take that responsibility. And I got even cruel /."

 

"56 Roger. Five a times ER. Enemy forces TI data."

 

Harry has been with the G regiment to have been coming under attacked from the Taliban on a daily basis. The British positions are easy targets. But in this landscape, the Taliban are very harder to spot. Let Alone to engage.

 

"Up on the right" "Easy to go" "Yeah easy to go, answer."

 

"There is a lot of time, the guys are engaging and some of invisible furrin points. Cause Taliban are / hiding in these ranches. And they'll put their heads up and that's it. Then if you guys are coming under a lot of far than accord the arrant and enthusiast comes out they disappearance just jumped on these holes or going to the bunkers."

 

Harry's specific role is that of a tactical air control of J-tac, calling up aircraft on bombing missions and support of ground forces. Much of the work is done from inside to 45 positions. Handle over video screens, showing images of possible targets and in touch with allied parties by radio.

 

"Yeah, roger have you about to confirm you're not going back with your going back."

 

But that's a tactical air controller. Harry also goes out on foot patrol.

 

That's when you're on the ground, carrying all the kit. And you then you come in the contact. You're type of the pos. If you could conclude you're not on the ready, flipper open, get on the radio, get the dress in. And the, yeah yes. you don't wanna become like it's been net traffic controller. You've got to dress like all over the place.

 

Harry has admitted that the decision last year not to send him to Iraq caused him to reconsider whether an army career was freezable. Now he appears to be more settled.

 

It's very nice to be, sort of a normal person. For once I think it's about normal like everyone to get. We have the /. You know there are just so funny, looking after me. Em, offices there were fully aware, what the situation isn't always keep an eye up for me. Em and then everyone else just get someone to daily life here. It's bigger things going onto the world and going on outside though in the frontline rather than. You know worrying about all love. /"

 

And Harry says he's not missing life back at home.

 

"I'm missing them most. I should have thought about it before it started. Em I dont' know. She... nothing really. Em it's besought. I'm not in now. I've been really had a shot for four days. I'll wash my clothes for a week and never they seem completely no /. Em so, I don't honestly know what I mistold. You know, Music. We've got music. We've got light, weve got food. We've got drink. No I don't miss British as far as I was questioned. It's very nice to be here. And I'll be the over guys. And just so fare and marking in and it's one the last."

 

For the solider prince who part is deployment will show in signs of frustration of not being allowed near a frontline. This troop may be something of a turning point.

 

"Now I come on I held in this, It's a proof of point, but em If he's done the right way and I can't quiet in /. It can't be done, as far as I'm concerned, I'm not here as a normal J, I'm ground of Pr/.

"All my wishes have come true, I was always hoping to get forward, um, the Commanding Officer was very sort of cool about it and said Commanding Officer 'yea, I want you to go' and obviously Mark the OC down here was willing to take that responsibility and I got here on Christmas Eve."

"Off cross six, Roger, a five times air and force is …… "

Harry's been with a Gird regiment to be coming under attack from the Taliban on a daily bases.

The British positions are easy targets, but in this landscape the Taliban are very much harder to spot, let alone to engage.

"Pop on the right, en, it’ll still go? Yeah, you should still go on, Sir.”

"All of the time the guys are engaging sort of invisible fire points cause the Taliban are so good at hiding in their trenches and then if the guys are coming under a lot of fire the I call the air in and as soon as the air comes up they disappear and just jumped down these holes or go into their bunkers."

Harry's specific role is that of a tactical air controller or a J tack, calling up aircraft on bombing missions and support of ground forces, much of the work is done from inside 45 positions, huddled over all of the video screens showing images of possible targets and in touch with ally pilots by radio.

"Yeah, Roger, have you resulted to confirm you're not going back or when you’re going back."

But as a tactical air controller, Harry also goes out on foot patrol.

"That’s when you are on the ground carrying all the kit and then you come under contact. You’ll type in the password. If your computer is not on the ready, flip it open, get on the radio, get the jets in. And the, yeah yes. You almost become like a bit of an air traffic controller. You've got jets flying all over the place. "

Harry admitted that the decision last year not to send him to Iraq caused him to reconsider whether an army career was feasible, now he appears to be more settled.

"It's very nice to be sort of a normal person, for once I think it's about no one's ever gonna get ,where is the girt, you know ,they are just so friendly ,looking after me ,and obviously they were fully aware what is, what the situation is and always keeping an eye for me ,and then everyone else just gets on with their daily life is a bigger things going on in the world and going on outside there in the front line, rather than ,you know ,worrying about 'Oh look, look, who's here'.”

And Harry says he is not missing life back at home.

"I'm missing the most… I should have thought about it before it starts. Em I don’t' know. She, um.. nothing really. Em it's bizarre. I'm out here now. I haven’t really had a shower for four days. I haven’t washed my clothes for a week and never have they seemed completely normal. Er, so, yeah I don't know, honestly know what I miss at all. You know, Music. We've got music. We've got light, we’ve got food. We've got drink. I don't miss booze if that is the next question. It's very nice just to be here. And I'll be with all the guys and just mucking in as one of the lads."

For the solider prince, who prides his deployment with showing signs of frustration not being allowed near a front line, this trip maybe something of a turning point?

"I think, now ,it think it has proved the point that if it is done the right way and kept quite in certain areas and then it can't be done and as far as I'm concerned I'm out here as a normal JTAC on the ground, not Prince Harry. "

For his family, like the families of all those servicemen and women in Afghanistan and Iraq it will be a time of some anxiety until he returns

Harry has been based in the southern part of Hillmont Province in a former Taliban Madrasa(madrasah) which has been turned by the British into a forward operating base, a small military fortress close to an area with a Talibaner Active.

Good evening, and welcome to the six o'clock news.

 

Prince Harry has on the front line fighting in Afghanistan for 10 weeks. British media had agreed to keep his deployment secret for his safety and that of his comrades, but the deal broke down after an American-based website ran the story. The prince, the third in line to the throne has been on active service in some of the most dangerous parts of Afghanistan, he said he was proud to be serving his country. Under a deal with the Ministry of Defense Nick Rachel was allowed to film Prince Harry in action.

 

It's the deployment Harry had been hoping for to join British forces on active service, but which he was denied last year when his unit was sent to Iraq without him. But after a careful discussion which included meetings between defense chiefs and the queen, he was sent to Afghanistan shortly before Christmas. The BBC together with other British News organizations agreed not to report the deployment to safeguard his security and that of British forces with him.

 

Harry has been based in the southern part of Helmand Province in a former Taliban Madrasa which has been turned by the British into a forward operating base, a small military fortress close to an area where the Taliban are active. It's allowed Harry to realize his ambition and to experience life close to the frontline.

 

"All my wishes have come true, I was always hoping to get forward, um, the Commanding Officer was very sort of cool about it and said 'you don't know, eh,this is where I want you to go'. I'm obviously mocked the OC down here ,um was willing to take that responsibility and I got here on Christmas Eve."

 

"Unprofile six, Roger, a five times AF enemy force t…… "

 

Harry's been with a Gurkha regiment who have been coming under attack from the Taliban on a daily basis.

 

The British positions are easy targets, but in this landscape the Taliban are very much harder to spot, let alone to engage.

 

"Pop on the right, en, still go? Yeah, you should go on, Sir.

 

"A lot of the time the guys are engaging sort of invisible firing points coz the Taliban are very good at hiding in their trenches. They put their heads up in that site. And then if you know, if the guys are coming under a lot of fire, then I call the air / and as soon as the air comes up they disappear, /just jump/ down these holes or go into their bunkers."

 

Harry's specific role is that of a tactical air controller or Jtech , calling up aircraft on bombing missions in support of ground forces. Much of the work is done from inside 45 positions, huddled over a video screens showing images of possible targets and in touch with ally pilots by radio.

 

"Yeah, Roger, have you back is to confirm you're not going back or youre going back."

 

But as a tactical air controller, Harry also goes out on foot patrol.

 

"Thats when you are on the ground carrying all the kit and then you come under contact. You'll type in the password. If your computer is not on the ready, flip it open, get on the radio, get the jets in. And the, yeah yes. You almost become like a bit of an air traffic controller. You've got jets flying all over the place. "

 

Harry admitted that the decision last year not to send him to Iraq caused him to reconsider whether an army career was feasible, now he appears to be more settled.

 

"It's very nice to be sort of a normal person, for once I think it's about as normal as everyone gonna get, where is the Gurkhas, you know ,they are just so friendly ,looking after me ,eh, and obviously they were fully aware what is, what the situation is ,always keeping an eye open for me ,and then everyone else just get some of their daily life here. It's bigger things going on in the world and going on outside there in the frontline, rather than ,you know ,worrying about 'Oh look, look, who's here?.

 

And Harry says he is not missing life back at home.

 

"Who I'm missing the mostI should have thought about it before it started. Em I dont know...she . Um.. nothing really. Em it's bizarre. You, I'm not annoy. I havent really had a shower for four days. I haven't washed my clothes for a week and everything seems completely normal, hehe. So, yeah I don't know, don't honestly know what I miss at all. You know, Music. We've got music. We've got lights, and weve got food. We've got drink. No, I don't miss booze if that is the next question. It's very nice to just to be here. And I'll be  with all the guys and just sort of, you know, mucking in as one of the lads."

 

For the solider prince who prior to his deployment was showing signs of frustration and not being allowed near a frontline, this trip maybe something of a turning point.

 

"I think, now , I come out here I think it's proved the point that in terms if it is done the right way and kept quite in this,in certain areas ,eh,then it can be done and as far as I'm concerned I'm out here as a normal Jtech on the ground, and not Prince Harry. "

 

For his family, like the families of all those servicemen and women in Afghanistan and Iraq it will be a time of some anxiety until he returns.
