Prince Harry liked to 'be amongst' the 'taste of blood' in Afghanistan

Prince Harry admitted to having the "taste of blood" in his mouth every time he boarded his Apache helicopter to attack the enemy in Afghanistan.

The 28-year-old royal - who recently completed 20 weeks on the frontline in the war-torn country - says the adrenalin would kick in as soon as Harry and his fellow soldiers got the call to take to the air.

He said: "As soon as we get a shout, whatever it is, we all run to the aircraft, and at that point you have the taste of blood in your mouth."

In a show aired on BBC Three last night (28.01.13), Harry - speaking from the Very High Readiness tent where he lived and slept while on 12-hour shifts - added: "I'm always down here wishing for the phone to go because then we're in amongst it."

However, Harry's comments have risked fresh criticism as last week he was accused of handing a propaganda coup to the Taliban after he talked candidly about killing insurgents and taking them "out of the game".

But his spokesman defended his remarks, saying: "He was describing how he copes with the adrenalin of a call-out, so it's important to understand the context in which he was speaking."
