Prince William in Afghanistan to salute fallen comrades

Monday November 15, 2010

As the Last Post sounded at the Remembrance Day service in London, Prince William was in Afghanistan remembering those killed in combat.

In what was described by the Royal Legion as a "huge gesture of respect and fellowship" he joined a military congregation in Helmand Province.

The Prince, a search and rescue pilot, laid a wreath at Camp Bastion.

Attached was a note reading: "For Jo, Lex and all those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country".

He was a personal friend of 2nd Lt Joanna Dyer who was killed in the Afghan conflict three years ago.

Major Lex Roberts, his platoon commander, died in Iraq in May 2007.
