In Loving Memory of

Mark 'Freeway' Hart

Last week we received the shocking news of the passing of Mark ‘Freeway’ Hart, a much loved Son, Brother, Uncle, Boyfriend, Godparent and most of all Friend. He will be remembered for his sometimes dry sense of humour, leadership, determination, generosity and caring nature.

In his memory I would like for people to share their memories and experiences with Mark, and a picture of the two of you if you have one to share. It could be one line or a short story; this is a chance for everybody to share their friendship and memories of the Great Man

I aim to build a huge bank of memories and stories which we can treasure forever

Thank you, Aaron (nephew)

Two reasons to go to the Army v Navy game, the rugby and mainly the reunion. Sadly the next one you will not be there. But we will drink with you in spirit. The main memory to stick in my mind is Freeway leading me astray on the 12th July in Belfast. we or …

I knew Freeway from ‘88 when I met him in Middle Wallop through to ‘06 in Wattisham. I never met a soldier like him. The perfect balance of professional soldier and outright scallywag. I aspired to that but never got the balance right. We spent 6 months in Split together in ‘98. It was …

The dry humour never fooled me, you had a heart of gold.  I met Freeway at 669 in Wattisham, he was a SSGT SQMS and I was a wet behind ears Airtrooper, but unlike most of the senior ranks he never spoke down to me and my junior colleagues, he treated us like adults …

This is a story from when we were at Junior Leaders.  I think it was the start of our 2nd term, so January 1985. Each Squadron would head off to Renney Lentney, near Plymouth, for some adventure training. We were accommodated in nissan huts, sleeping in rickety bunk beds. Sheets and blankets, no duvets. …

Mark Thompson

I spent 15 months with Mark at Junior Leaders Regiment, Royal Armoured Corps, from Sept ’84 to Dec ’85, also passing out from there to the Army Air Corps myself. I never saw Mark after that, as we were posted to different AAC regiments in the then West Germany, and our paths never crossed. …
