8 Para

My friend's dad recently passed away, as part of the process of preparing his dad's house for sale, he found written on a wall behind the wallpaper the following:

FARRAR <- circled
8th Battalion
Midland Counties
Para Regiment
6 Airborne Division
6th June 1944
24th March 1945

does anybody have any idea what FARRAR means? and why it would be circled?

Any help is greatly appreciated
Could it be a reference to A Farrar-Hockley? He was a captain in Korea, of course, but he might well have been of an age to have fought in WW2.
