Prince Harry Flies Back To RAF Brize Norton
Prince Harry flew back into RAF Brize Norton in Oxfordshire yesterday after a 20-week tour of Afghanistan.
The 28-year-old Apache co-pilot gunner said at the RAF base:
"I think for the thousands of guys that are on operations at the moment, we are continuing, essentially, to try and do a job.
"A job for ourselves, a job for the guys left and right of us, and from my point of view, especially for the guys on the ground.
"We are supporting the Afghan people, supporting the Afghan army. The way that things are going are fantastic - I suppose that sounds a typical MoD army answer, but it's true.
"The difference between 2006 and now is absolutely fantastic.
"You get asked to do things that you would expect to do wearing this uniform, and it's as simple as that really.''
Harry did not go with the rest of his 662 Squadron, 3 Regiment Army Air Corps, to their headquarters in Wattisham in Suffolk.
St James's Palace said he left Brize Norton privately, but did not comment on where he was headed.
