Prince Charles Praises British Troops in Christmas Message

Bloomingdales Canada

Prince Charles has spoken to British forces fighting in Afghanistan to tell them that the nation owes them "an everlasting debt of gratitude". He thanked them for their "fortitude and relentless courage".

In a pre-recorded message broadcast on radio on Boxing Day, he said that all troops serving "in far off lands" were in his thoughts and prayers.

 He joked that he had been sent a "very rare and precious letter" from Prince Harry, serving in Afghanistan.

His  son is an Apache helicopter pilot, serving as part of the 100-strong 662 Squadron, 3 Regiment, Army Air Corps in Helmand province.

The Prince's broadcast was aired on the British Forces Broadcasting Service radio on the Total Ops Connection programme, broadcast across the world from Camp Bastion.
