Prince Harry to return to front line
By Gordon Rayner and Thomas Harding
The 27 year-old, who spent 10 weeks as an infantry soldier in Helmand in 2008, will join a unit which has the highest kill rate of any serving in Afghanistan.
Royal sources said he was looking forward to doing his duty after completing a gruelling 18-month training programme which culminated in him finishing top of his class and being declared limited combat ready yesterday.
Once the Prince has completed pre-deployment training with his squadron he will be classed as fully combat ready.
With his brother, the Duke of Cambridge, currently serving as an RAF Search and Rescue pilot, the Prince's forthcoming deployment means two members of the Royal family will be on operational service for the first time since the modern Armed Forces were formed.
