Martin Alexander 'Maz' Wood



Pay Respect

Ladies and Gentlemen,
It is with great sadness that Hawkeye has learned of the untimely and tragic death of Major (Retd) Martin Alexander (Maz) Wood (10 Jan 70 – 17 May 22). Martin served from 1986 until his retirement in late 2021. He joined us from the Junior Leaders Regiment and went on to serve with 3 Regt AAC in Soest and at Wattisham, and later with 9 Regt AAC in Dishforth. He was posted to 1 Regt AAC in Gutersloh in 2002 and commissioned in 2004. A period of service at Middle Wallop saw him returning to 1 Regt AAC in Gutersloh in 2012 where he was appointed as OC HQ Sqn. When the Regiment moved to Yeovilton he was briefly appointed as COS ARF before taking up a post at DE&S at Abbey Wood. In his final years of military service he was 2IC of 5 Regt AAC at Aldergrove and then on the Staff of HQ 1 Avn Bde CT at Middle Wallop. On retirement he took up a Civil Service post at Abbey Wood, working on the Watchkeeper project. Those of us who served and worked with Maz will remember him as competent, hard working professional and genial friend
Our thoughts are with his wife, Esther, his sons Lucas, Liam and Louis and with his many friends and comrades within our serving and retired communities.
