Prince Charles Uplifted By Harry's Calls

Prince Harry has phoned home from the front line in Afghanistan three times, the Prince of Wales has revealed.

Like any other serviceman away on operations Harry, an Apache co-pilot gunner, rung his father to presumably catch up with family life and let everyone know he is doing well.

The heir to the throne revealed he had spoken to Harry a number of times since his deployment in early September during a Sydney reception with the Duchess of Cornwall for Australian servicemen and women who have recently returned from operations around the world.

The Prince chatted to Major Karl Reynolds, from 19th Chief Engineer Works, and a group of his military colleagues at Garden Island, home to the Royal Australian Navy's largest Pacific Ocean base.

Charles joked about the awesome firepower of the Apache telling the men and their partners: "They're a nasty piece of work, I wouldn't like to get in their way."

Maj Reynolds (33) who returned home to Kincumber near Sydney in July after a six-month deployment building military accommodation and airstrips in Afghanistan, said after chatting to the Prince: "He was talking about the Apache and what a lethal bit of kit they are - once the Taliban see it they disappear.

"And he was also saying he had received calls from his son, he said he had phoned three times.

"It's good Harry is phoning home, it's so easy to do now with the internet, a letter is always good but you can't beat a call home."

Have been out here in Brisbane for 40 years. Miss the Andrew, the good mates and the runs ashore we all use to have. Miss being "G" "medically "T"

Thanks Dougie, I just don't know how I would get though the day without knowing that Prince Hal is doing an ET (phone home) on occasion (if he can't what chance has the rest of the guys and gals?)
