Prince Harry to hone flying skills in Camp Bastion

Captain Harry Wales, as he is known in the Army, will today hone his flying skills and get to grips with the fearsome Apache armoury before going out on operations in his role as co-pilot gunner.

The Prince has spent his third night in the Helmand province base, a huge site in the middle of the desert shared with US, Estonian, Danish and Afghan troops in the south west of the country.
