Colour Sergeant Mark Powell

of the Parachute Regiment

Mark Powell, a Colour Sergeant in the Parachute Regiment, died in a crash between two Puma helicopters in Iraq on Sunday, 15th April, 2007. Mark Mclaren, a Sergeant in the Royal Air Force died in the same incident.

Mark Lawrence Powell was born on 1 August 1969 in South Wales. He joined the Parachute Regiment on 3 December 1990. He was 37 years old when he died.

Colour Sergeant Mark Powell was an exemplary Combat Leader, soldier, father, husband, friend and Briton; dedicated to his family, his men, his mission and his country. In the finest traditions of the Army and his Regiment - he was utterly selfless; never shirking danger, effort or hard service in the pursuit of his mission. His loss is tragic, and keenly felt by all; but his example to others will be sure to endure and inspire us all for years to come. Our thoughts now are with his family and his comrades.
