    someone referred to a photo as he looking 'frail'
    I didn't think he looked frail at all (folks are just so used to seeing obesity everywhere ... including in the mirror! )

    I presumed some terminal disease (unless i missed something)
    Really enjoyed his postings. cheers Mark

        Mark certainly said some things he shouldn't have said. I've never done anything like that here, unless you could threatening a couple people's lives. At heart, he was a good guy, interesting, funny, bizarre mini-bike fan. I helped him with a couple projects. I sent him a book he was interested in and he sent me a masood hat. It was too small for my big head, but my bald cousin still wears it. RIP, Sgt. Harrop.

          Sad to hear this...even though it's been since 2022.

          I vaguely remember Mark's activities on here...just that there was lots of conflict with others.

          RIP Mark and thank you for your service.

          my opinion shouldn't be taken as gospel or in any way that would lead you to believe otherwise (30Sep2021)
