Memorial plaque in the village church remembers F/Sgt J.L. Tarran KIA 02/06/42

He was WOP on 61 Sqn Lancaster R5562 QR-B, that had departed Syerston at 0005 for Ops Essen

The aircraft was intercepted above Bienen near Emmerich in “Raum 4C” (Box 4C) by a Night-Fighter captained by Oblt Manfred Meurer (IX/NJG1) and shot down for his 3rd Abschusse (He mis-identified the aircraft as a Halifax)

The aircraft crashed at Rees, 19km NW of Wesel, Germany at 0154. Six of the crew were killed, one became POW
