Prince Harry earns his combat pay
Prince Harry is thought to have killed his first Taliban fighters as he flew to the rescue of a patrol that had come under attack. The third in line to the throne has been serving as the gunner and navigator in an Apache attack helicopter for the Army Air Corps in Afghanistan since September.
He is thought to have made his first "kill" a few weeks after arriving.
Defence sources denied reports that he had killed a Taliban "commander" but admitted that he had deployed his weaponry on operations.
