Prince Harry has completed his first two weeks with the Australian Army as his British military career enters its final stages.

Harry has been participating in day-to-day soldiering activities and physical training sessions with the 1st Brigade, as well as undertaking flight simulation training.

His itinerary also included time in an armed reconnaissance helicopter.

After meeting with some of the army’s wounded, injured and ill members, the royal joined in a game of wheelchair Australian Football League with soldiers from the recovery centre and the 1st Brigade.

Earlier, while on duty with North-West Mobile Force, Harry met with locals of the Wuggubun community in the Kununurra region of western Australia.

During this time he was briefed on operations and trained in bush survival lessons, including how to source food and water. After receiving his orders, Harry headed out on patrol with members of the force, spending two nights camping out in the remote Kununurra region.

His attachment with the Australian Defence Force will continue after Gallipoli commemorations in Turkey, when he will return to Australia to spend time with Australian Army units in Perth and Sydney.

Harry, a captain in the Army, is in Australia on a four-week attachment before leaving the British military in June after 10 years’ service.
