Remember Mark from the March 64 Course. Quiet with a wry sense of humour. Photo taken on Moresby Harbour April 64. L to R Graham "Kipper" Mathews, Peter Harrison (rear) Andy Brodie, Mark O'Regan, Ian Smalley and Max Day. Interesting to note The Colorado Paper Obit referred to Mark as Sir Mark Vincent O'Regan.
