It was with deep regret that I learned of Cpl Mark Beanland's death in August 05. It was a shock and my sympathy goes out to Mark's family. I served with Mark on numerous posts and he was always a joy to be around.
Myself, Martin Haigh, "H" Heywood and Neil "OZ" Holdsworth are all saddened by the loss of "Beanie" after serving with him at MT Bruggen in 93 to 96. Could we pass on our sympathy to his family. He was a great bloke and an inspiration to us all. Thank you.
Cpl Mark Beanie Beanland died on Saturday the 27th of August 2005 in a motorbike accident in Stafford. He was currently on TSW having just moved from 2MT. His service is on Monday the 5th of September. He will be greatly missed.
It is with great sadness I have to inform everyone that Mark "Beanie" Beanland was tragically taken from us on 27th August 2005. God must have decided that he needed yet another great MTD in his MT empire up above. You may be gone but you will never be forgotten and you will be greatly missed by all.
