Maj Philp, from Worcestershire, said Harry was a "good extra pair of hands" during the training exercise.The 35-year-old Royal Artillery officer said having the prince with the team was "great".
He knows what he's doing. He's got his military training, and it's very, very easy, so he's a good extra pair of hands.
It's great having Harry along, and hopefully he appreciates it too.
It's a chance not just for him to experience all the practical stuff that we've just done as well, but for us to get together as a team and start to get to know each other better.
It seemed very easy from the beginning, but it's certainly even more comfortable the more time we spend together.
