Mark A. Hartley
Name (Type or Print)
First Sergeant Senior NCO Baker Company HQ
Rank Position Platoon/Squad
I just want to say its been a privilege to be Company Sergeant of Baker Company and I have enjoyed every minute of it. However in the last few weeks certain events have made think towards RL, particularly my family and work. Although I could carry on, I feel now is the time to move on and let someone else have a go.

People to thank - well there are too many really to mention all great blokes, but I will single out a few. SSgts Kruihtof & Sterk - my two apprentices - I will miss you boys, and T/3 Swomma - the best clerk within the 29th - couldn't have done it without him; All the Platoon HQs - SSgts. Bagge and Kim and Noye, and WO1 Brewer, who I hope next time I call in has a bar on his shoulder! And Lts Derby and Dashwood, and finally Cpt. Patty - I know it's tough running outside company but if you get the right bloke in to replace me and you'll be right. It has been a pleasure working with you, Captain.

So to Sgt. Corrion and all the rest of the boys within the squads - look after yourselves and maybe one day I'll see you on the other side. Enjoy!
