Prince Harry continues to champion sports for injured army personnel in Australia

Having showed off his wheelchair rugby skills during a match at the Invictus Games last year, it was only fitting that Prince Harry tried his hand at wheelchair Australian Rules Football while he's Down Under. After meeting with some wounded and injured army personnel, the Prince joined members of the Soldier Recovery Centre and the 1st Brigade for a round of the fast-paced game.

The 30-year-old is now halfway through his month-long attachment with the Australian Army. During the first two weeks of his time in the Antipodean country Captain Harry Wales, as he is known in the armed forces, has spent his time with the the North-West Mobile Force and the 1st Brigade.

Harry's programme has included time in an Armed Reconnaissance Helicopter Tiger, which he undertook flight simulation training for before heading out with members of the 1st Aviation Regiment on a reconnaissance flight from Robertson Barracks, Darwin, Northern Territory.

The Queen's grandson, whose time in Australia means he will most likely miss the birth of William and Kate's second baby, has also been taking part in the day-to-day activities of soldiering, including physical training sessions and preparing for the field.

He has been trained in bush survival, which has included lessons in sourcing food and water. The Prince then headed out on patrol and spent two nights camping out in the remote Kununurra region of Western Australia.

During his trip, Prince Charles' youngest son has also met with locals of the Wuggubun community in Kununurra.

At Wuggubun, Harry spent time engaging with elders and children of the Indigenous community – as ever proving a hit with the youngsters.

Next on the agenda for Captain Wales, after he returns from the Gallipoli centenary commemorations next weekend on ANZAC Day, will be a return to Oz for placements with army units in Perth and Sydney.

Harry will then undertake a week-long tour of New Zealand.
