A number of years have passed since “Half a Mile in Thirty Years” was published and I have been encouraged to continue the saga up to the time when I finally left the workforce.
“Half a Mile in Thirty Years” ended when I arrived back in Canberra to take up the appointment of Director General Joint Communications-Electronics. Before proceeding with my adventures in that posting, I thought it worthwhile to retrace my steps and cover a number of side roads which became important in my later years. These include my association with the Duntroon Society and the Venerable Order of the Hospital of St John of Jerusalem.

Ok, so first question is why you're producing text in pages? Could you attach the actual text file you're getting when you export to "plain text"?
It appears your text is being placed in a code block, the bolding would be part an attempt at syntax highlighting. I assume it would go away if you turned off Syntax Highlighting in Preferences->Style.
The second part is that it looks like you have keyword highlighting with passive voice detection turned on. This can be toggled from the Keyword drawer (the small highlighter icon in the lower right or with ⌘⇧K) or you can just toggle highlighting on and off with ⌘⇧H.

BBEdit is great. For writing I usually work in something like
MultiMarkdown Composer or Byword, but any text editor will do the trick.
The problem with the export from Pages is probably that it indents your
paragraphs. In Markdown, that converts them into code blocks, which is
not what you want. I'd recommend skipping the Pages step entirely.
