John George Wiseman

John is listed on the War Memorial as one of those who gave his life during the Second World War.

John Wiseman of Grange Farm, killed in action on 14th February 1943 in the Straits of Dover.

There can be no better memorial to John than that provided on a website you can see by clicking here . On that website there is a full description of him and how, with his comrades, he died on 14th February 1943. It is testimony to a hero that I cannot improve on so urge you to visit that site. John was a true son of Martham and there is a unique memorial to him near the roadside at Grange Farm on Repps Road.
