Do what your Grand-mum says

BZ to Prince Harry.
PRINCE HARRY has been secretly fighting the Taliban on the front line in Afghanistan, the Ministry of Defence confirmed today.

The 23-year-old Household Cavalry officer has spent the past 10 weeks serving in war-ravaged Helmand Province.

The deployment had been cloaked in secrecy under a news blackout deal agreed across the UK media to prevent details reaching the Taliban and endangering Harry and his comrades.

But the arrangement broke down today after news was leaked out on the US website the Drudge Report.

As part of the deal a group of journalists had visited the prince in Helmand on condition that details would only be publicised once he was safely back in the UK.
I like the fact that he is in the company of Ghurkas. Yep, he was man-for-man in some of the best company a man in combat can be in.

Hat tip Drudge.
UPDATE: Miss Ladybug was nice enough to point out something for us - nice baseball hat!

One more thing; will John or someone help me ID that side-arm he has on his vest? Not a big fan of his muzzle control ..... might give you trouble with the future xth in line to the throne....
