A GAY soldier spoke yesterday about how Prince Harry bravely rescued him from a terrifying homophobe who threatened a gunner attack by squaddies from a rival regiment.

The Prince stepped in to save Trooper James Wharton after he was confronted by six soldiers threatening to 'batter' him.

Trooper Wharton fled to find Harry - who was his tank commander - and tearfully told the Prince what had happened.

'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. 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 s*** out once and for all."
