The John Wayne of the Royals has been itching to get back out there rolleyes.gif


http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/top-stories/2...15875-23204263/

He added that the issue of his redeployment was a matter for the “MoD chain of command”.

Meaning the propoganda puppet masters wink.gif

I have been enjoying all this week the superb spectacle of her Most Gracious Majesty and her family gracing the meeting at Royal Ascot....and Ive just picked out Samitar in the 2.30 and Nathaniel in the 3.05.
What a spectacle,absolutely unique and makes you proud to be British. rolleyes.gif
300 years of traditional racing at the course.

You should get a Knighthood, Jupiter, for your appreciation of ‘People of quality’. rolleyes.gif
Unlike that Thee you know how to respect your betters tongue.gif

I'm sure the news of our brave Warrior Prince has cheered you up rolleyes.gif

I think the news that Prince Harry may be back in Afghanistan next April should not have been made public. It just makes him and his Regiment more of a prime target.

I remember when Prince Andrew was a Pilot in the Argentina conflict, the Argies were desperate to shoot him down. They kept bragging, " we're going to get your little Prince", but they did not get him.

Good luck Harry.
Mathieson
Aye, good luck Harry. Hopefully all our troops will get safely home sometime soon.
TeeHeeHee
For those of you who may not be aquainted with Harry's machine I can tell you it's a honey. It's a Boeing AH-64 Apache longbow Attack Helicopter; Harry's will be the AgustaWestland Apache which is the British built version.

Built like a brick outhouse and bullet proof up to 23mm.
Got more fire-power than Lara Croft.
Eats tanks for breakfast.
And has a run-dry system in case it loses it's oil.

When Harry goes out to do his tour he'll be sittin' in the greatest combat helicopter ever built. I worked on that and the Cobra for the Issies years ago. For people like me aircraft really are just big burdz with a different method of transferrin' energy.
I love to stand under a wide-bodied jet and just take in the whole big burd ... Like a swan or a condor or such.
The Apache is a burd o`prey, mean little bugger with ferocious talons and beak.
The phrase, "A Mean Machine", was explicitly conceived for this powerful weapon.

Have a look at these links including the British Army Website ... and don't go worryin' about Harry and his mates wink.gif

Maybe it's his option to get away from the rest of the goofey dysfunctionals in his super extended family. D'you reckon he gets paid for it ????
Heather
Instead of sending more Troops into Afghanistan, I wish they would pull them all out.
I don't understand why our Troops are there anyway.

I always feel like crying and sometimes I have, when I see those coffins being brought through Wootton Bassett and how respectful the people of that town are to our dead Troops.

Peace talks with the Taliban, Heather - as if they haven't been going on for ages but they know Taliban have the trump card. Obscene that so many of our lads are sacrificed just to 'save face' for politicians (It was similar in N.Ireland)

The safest place to be for our lads is close to the Warrior Prince when he gets out there!!!

He won't be allowed anywhere near the front line, but we'll get the usual staged images of him in the firing line, more kudos for the royals, lets give them a pay rise.

This has got nothin' to do with my knighthood rolleyes.gif ... but royal or no royal he wasn't trained up to be an Apache ( post #8) pilot just so he could stay clear of the front line - unless that means being behind the front lines.
He's an Apache pilot, then when he goes back over he's in among it like the rest of them.
If anything happens to him he might get a bigger funeral ... but his body bag will be like all the others.

I have had several laugh out louds at this thread, its a honey.

I think Harry is gemme enough to get in there with the crown doon.

Once you ve been trained to go behind enemy lines and all that, you really must have a go at the real thing, its awesome, as one returning mission pilot said,"its just like the movies"

Sometimes the movie in question might be "Catch 22" rolleyes.gif
My mate's brother; we'll call him Kenny, is going back for his 5th tour; when you can do 4 ...?
He's a specialist.
When he does his job he's brought in by helicopter with an Apache ridin' shotgun.
When he's not doing his job ... he does nothin'; doesn't get involved. Not my job.
One day on his last tour; let's say at an outpost called Camp Fort Bronx, they get a call in from a couple of guys up in the surrounding hills that they really could murder a cup of tea. So Kenny is asked to take a flask of tea to them; since he doesn't do a lot at Fort Bronx anyway. So he goes off with a squad in one of the base's Land Rovers which isn't fitted with bullet proofing 'cos it's only for use on and around the base (taxpayer's money). On the way they are ambushed from behind. The guy in the back of the wagon should be shootin' back but he's scrunched up in the corner as the bullets are whizzing in through the back and out the roof further forward.
"Shoot back," shouts Kenny.
"You effin' shoot back", comes the reply.
"Not ma effin job M8", replies Kenny keepin his head down. laugh.gif
The procedure in this situation is to stop and evacuate the vehicle while returning fire.
The two guys covering the sides-to-front manage to return fire and the guy at the back was then up and firing; now that there wasn't a hail of fire over his head, and only then did the driver stop and then they all got out and fired intae them till they either fell or ran away; whichever.
Somebody asked Kenny if the flask wi' the tea was all right.
The base is fired on with an average 3 rockets a day. Old Russian or Chinese rockets which do little or no damage so when they come in; and the guys are lucky enough to get a 1 minute warning, they should hoof it to the nearest bunker but they just get down on the ground and burrow themselves a bit because they reckon they only damage you'll get from one is if it's a direct hit in your chest. The Apaches will pick up the source with their heat-seekers but if they are three kilometers away by the time the Apache gets there the Taliban are gone and the home-made launchers are destroyed.
Tomorrow might be the same.
But the money's good with lots of overtime and when you get back to somewhere in Europe you can have a real ball for a couple of months and squeeze in some diamond time with the family too ... before you go back out.

I have photo's of the shot up wagon. You really can't make that up ... unless you're on the staff of Warner Bros.
Which I'm not.

HEY KENNY, Can you do that again ... but with less dust this time? And really grin this time. laugh.gif

Pilot says it's just like the movies ... and nobody gets the joke.
Crewsy Fixer
Awesome story. You make it sound like Mr Heller.
TeeHeeHee
I wish I could post some of the action DVDs from Kenny; Glaswegian, clan Stewart. He's in for the full 22; years not Catch so it really is a job for him and he does get a lot of free time. On return from his tour he is based at a certain camp in the country which didn't win two world wars and one world cup. But he's regarded as the lodger there and does pretty much what he wants; including study, diving, camoflage skiing, para-gliding etc. He really gets the max out of the army but for that he's prepared to give them what they want ... till he wants a change himself from his particular specialty.
He's trained up to do a job he enjoys like just about all his mates and gets good payed with lots of perks.
Like every job it has it's drawbacks.
All those who go out to Afghanistan know that

What I found funny about the story Wombat, was that the Land Rovers for on the base use are not armoured, to save on the taxpayers money, but it needed 5 armed soldiers to risk life and limb to supply a warming flask of hot tea to the two lookouts. laugh.gif

He went on a really difficult outdoor exercise camp when he was at Timber Tops school camp in Australia. He also studied Welsh for a few weeks before investiture when he gallantly was proclaimed prince of Wales by his mummy. That must count for something????

I don't think you should be talkin' about His Royal Highness The Prince Charles Philip Arthur George, Prince of Wales and Earl of Chester, Duke of Cornwall, Duke of Rothesay, Earl of Carrick, Baron of Renfrew, Lord of the Isles, PRINCE AND GREAT STEWARD OF SCOTLAND, Royal Knight Companion of the Most Noble Order of the Garter, Royal Knight Companion of the Most Ancient and Most Noble Order of the Thistle, Knight Grand Cross of the Most Honourable Order of Bath, Member of the Order of Merit, Knight of the Order of Australia, Companion of the Queen's Service Order, Member of Her Majesty's Most Honourable Privy Council, Aide-de-Camp to Her Majesty, like that.

Royalists in Canada want Prince Harry to pack his bags and up sticks from London and become their king.

They want the Prince, who is third in line to the throne, to live in the Canadian capital Ottawa to give the Royal Family a permanent presence in the Commonwealth country.

Failing that, there have even been suggestions that Prince William, when he becomes king, could 'rotate' between Canada, Australia and London.

Don't believe this for a minute. I think the Daily Mail is writing fiction now. Most of the people I know would prefer to see the Royal family closeted in London and stay there! Thankfully 'they' will not be coming to BC but I'm sure they will have the obligatory "rent-a-crowd" in the Provinces they are visiting.

The last time one of them came here and as they always do, they empty the primary schools ( they would never dare allow Aussie high school students near them) line the sides of the roads with kids who have been told they are going to see Justine Bieber, take one sweep shot to the end of the line and make them all cross the road to take the next sequence. Oh and the Grannies get to stand in line to make the audience think there were actual adults at the stage managed worship of our beloved pommey icons.
Actually Mary Donaldssson princess of Denmaaark and queen of Tasmania, can command a bigger audience than the royal house of Saxe Coburg Gotha can.
