Say what you want about Prince Harry’s life of ease and entitlement. Decry his royalty and the system he is a part of, but don’t question the man’s credentials as a warrior. After he was outed by a reporter, during ground operations, he returned home and battled his way back into action. Sure, he was afforded opportunity which others could only dream of, based upon his name and bloodline, but his brothers-in-arms were still in the fray and he returned to help them.
I got nothing but love for the man, the warrior, Big H! Bravo, Sir.
(The Sun) — Prince Harry has killed his first Taliban commander, The Sun can reveal.
The 28-year-old gunship co-pilot was called on to unleash a missile strike to eliminate a senior terror leader.
Harry has proved a massive hit with comrades in Helmand, Afghanistan, who have nicknamed him Big H.
A defence insider said: “Big H is a legend.
“We were on patrol and the Apache helicopters were called in. We heard this posh voice come over the radio and knew it was Big H. They were tracking a Taliban leader — he was commander level.
“The Apache then let off some Hellfire missiles and its 30mm cannon and ‘boom’. It was Big H all the way.”
The Sun understands the decisive strike occurred in late October during a partnered patrol with Afghan troops hunting the Taliban chief.
Gunship co-pilot Harry is on tour in Helmand and has been flying daily combat missions helping “troops in contact” — the code given when ground forces are engaged by enemy fighters.
