half-tour Harry
 n.— «They’ve got a difficult decision to make. But if he does come home, he’s only three months in to a sixth-month tour. There is that term for someone who doesn’t last his full time—‘half-tour Harry”—and if he does come back I’m sure he’ll have fun poked at him by his pals for years to come.» —“Generals to decide on Prince’s future” Sunderland Echo (United Kingdom) Feb. 29, 2008.
