Harry confronted the other soldiers and then reported the incident to a senior officer.
"I told him, 'I think I'm going to be murdered by the infantry.'I climbed into the turret and talked Harry through exactly what had happened," Wharton wrote. "He had a complete look of bewilderment on his face. I couldn't stop the tears from welling up in my eyes. He said, 'Right, I'm going to sort this shit out once and for all.' He climbed out of the tank and I poked my head out of the turret a few moments later to see him having a go."
Wharton's new book, Out In The Army, chronicles his life in the military, as well as details of his camaraderie with Prince Harry.
