Harry completes 1st phase of Afghanistan training

Prince Harry is finishing his first phase of initial training at Camp Bastion in Afghanistan.



London: Prince Harry is finishing his first phase of initial training at Camp Bastion in Afghanistan.

The 27-year-old Army captain arrived in Afghanistan for his second tour there on Friday but will not start flying Apache helicopter missions for at least seven more days.

Today, the third-in-line to the British throne was expected to complete his two-day course in first aid, shooting, and roadside-bomb awareness.

He then is to start Apache-specific preparation tomorrow, where he will begin to familiarize himself with the helicopter`s configurations for Afghanistan.
The Prince`s previous posting as a battlefield air traffic controller in Afghanistan in late 2007 and early 2008 lasted only 10 weeks. It was cut short amid fears for his safety after his deployment was made public.
