Sitrep 1 Funeral arrangements

I have just received a report from Tony Pitt (Plymouth Branch) that Captain Brian Paul Tarr OBE RFA(Retd) crossed the bar last night 12 Dec 2016 aged 70 after a long battle with cancer. I will, as usual, post sitreps on to this page as and when more information becomes available.

Brian’s funeral will take place at 1400 on Wednesday 21st December at the St Mary and St Gabriel Church in Stoke Gabriel, Devon (HERE for their website and HERE for a map).  Family flowers only but donations to Rowcroft Hospice, Torquay (HERE for their website and HERE for a map).  The undertakers are T&I Stockman, 7 Churston Broadway, Dartmouth Road, Paignton, Devon TQ4 6LE (HERE for their website and HERE for a map).

On behalf of the RFA Association I offer our sincere condolences to his widow Jane and all their family.


If you have any remembrances of Brian please email it to me at and I will post them on this page. I am also looking for photographs of Brian for this piece and the RFA Association Gallery and Archive, If you have one please email it to me.
