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
IIRC There was an Op Farrar - perhaps he was involved?
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.
