Sir Mark's upbring was a typical upbring in 1960's New Zealand although due to his father serving in the New Zealand Army Sir Mark's Family moved around the north of Wellington a bit. As a child Sir Mark was interested in athletics and was once a member of the Featherston branch of Little Athletics along with his sister Rt. Hon. Helen Fowler MHC. Sir Mark as child also enjoyed fishing with his father either at Petone from the Bridge or Queens wharf in Wellington.
During the Early 1970's Sir Mark and his Family moved to Australia. As a Teenager Sir Mark was popular and had many friends, though Sir Mark's Interest in sport had not changed with Sir Mark playing both Rugby Union and League but Sir Mark refused to play AFL.
Sir Mark Joined the Royal Australian Navy (RAN) in 1980 and left it in 1985, having served on the HMAS Melbourne (CVS-21) and the HMAS Hobart (DDG 39).
On March 1 2010 HM King Anthony appointed Sir Mark as an Admiral and Chief of Naval Operations within the Kingdom.
Sir Mark is a staunch supporter of proper military procedure and manners and has modeled the KOZNS on theRoyal Navy and the Royal Australian Navy. Under Sir Mark's Leadership the Kingdom of Zealandia Naval Service (KOZNS) has grown to become the largest and most organised military branch in the Kingdom of Zealandia.
