Prince Harry to start ADF deployment on Monday

PRINCE Harry will arrive in Australia on Monday to begin his four-week deployment with the nation's defence forces.

The fourth in line to the throne will arrive in Canberra on Monday where he will travel to the Australian War Memorial to lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

He will also view the First World War and Afghanistan galleries.

Prince Harry will then report to the Chief of Defence Force Air Chief Marshal Mark Binskin for duty.

Captain Wales, as he is known in the British Army, will work and live alongside colleagues in the Australian Army in a number of regiments in Sydney, Darwin and Perth.

He is expected to take part in a range of unit-based activities and training exercises including urban training exercises, regional bush patrols, flight simulation and aviation activities, joint fire exercises and indigenous engagements activities.

It is understood Captain Wales will also meet wounded, injured and ill service personnel during his time in the country.

He will also travel to Turkey to attend the Gallipoli commemorations before returning to Australia to complete his deployment.
