Britain’s Ministry of Defence says Prince Harry has returned to Afghanistan for a tour of combat duty.


CAMP BASTION, Afghanistan - Britain’s Ministry of Defence says Prince Harry has returned to Afghanistan to fly Apache attack helicopters during a four-month tour of combat duty.

The 27-year-old who is third in line to the British throne looked relaxed, if slightly tired Friday, and gave a thumbs-up after a long journey on a standard troop flight from England.

Capt. Harry Wales, as he is known, wore his combat uniform upon arrival and joined his 100-strong unit — the 662 Squadron, 3 Regiment Army Air Corps.  (*)
