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 the deployment secret for his safety and that of his comrades, but the deal broke down after an American based website ram 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 the deal with the Ministry of Defence Nick Racheal was allowed to film Prince Harry in action.

 

It's the deployment that 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 chiefs and the Queen, he was sent to Afghanistan shortly before Christmas .The BBC together with all that British 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 the former Taliban madras, which has been turned by the British into a forward operating base, a small military fortress close to an area with a Taliban active. It allowed Harry to realize his ambition and to experience life close to the front line.

 

"All my wishes are come true , I was always hoping to go forward ,um, the commander of service was very sort of cool about it ,and said yeah, now this is all I want, I need to go ,I am obviously, Mark, they will see you down here, was willing to take the responsibility and I got here on Christmas eve"

 

"* six roger , a five a time's air and before *"

 

Harry's been with a * arrangement 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 lone to engage .

 

"Pop on the right, en, it still go? yeah, you should still go on sir "

 

"all of the time the guys are in engaging sort of invisible far in points cause Taliban have right got the adding that's *,----and then if the goies coming under a lot far then I call the air as soon as I come out they dissapear, and just jump down these holes or go into the bunkers "

 

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

 

---

 

But as a tactical air controller ,Harry also goes out on foot patrol ,"when you are on the ground carrying all the cap and you come out to contact your top of pose village computer are not already flip on the open ,get on the radio ,get the jackson?, and , you become like a little bit of an air traffic controller ,you've got jets flying all over the place"

 

Harry has admitted that the decision last year not to send him to Iraq caused him to reconsider whether or not 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 *,you know ,they are just so friendly ,looking after me ,and obviously they were fully aware what the situation is and always keeping an eye for me ,and then everyone else just get some of the daily life is a bigger things going on the world and going on ,and going out there in the front line ,rather than ,you know ,worrying about what are we looking for "

 

And Harry says h e is not missing life back at home. "Well, I miss in the most * before the stuff * ,I don't know , she ,um, nothing really it's bizarre, and I know I've haven't really showered for 4 day ,and wash my clothes for week, and everything seems completely normal ,and so I don't know there's anything that 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 Bruse if that was the next question, it's very nice just to be here and be with all the guys and just sort of marking in this front lines "

 

For the solider prince , who is proud of his deployment was showing signs of frustration not being allowed near a front line ,this trip maybe something of a turning point :

 

"I think ,now ,it come out to prove the point that if it is done the right way and kept close in certain areas and then it can't be done and as far as I'm concerned I'm out here as a normal * on the ground, not prince Harry. "

 

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