It is with sadness that we report information received from a veteran telling us that Major (Retd) John Peter Calder Tarran had passed away aged 88 on 27 Feb 17.

He was born John Arthur Taffs on 9 Nov 29 but changed his name in 1959. John had commissioned into the Royal Berkshire Regiment. He gained his wings on No 97 Light Liaison Course in 1953/54 and had a short tour with 1 (Indep) Sqn GPR before joining 656 Sqn in the Far East. He was seconded to French Language duties in 1957/58 before attending 135 Rotary Course in 1959 and transfer to the AAC. His subsequent tours included 651 Sqn, a period as an instructor at the Army Air Corps Centre, time on the Staff and then command on 4 Flt AAC before he retired in 1967.
John was not a member of the AACVA. We have no family details for him and no information on funeral details.
