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.
