David Webb, was born February 1913 in Springfield, Manor Road, Whitstable in Kent, his mother Annie Georgina Webb (nee Walsh) was born on the Isle of Sheppey, please see her page for more.
On his birth cetificate his father is down as David Webb retiered Officer Welsh Regiment.
David Webb wrote a 122 page document about his life which can be loaned from family members.
Very early on his life he broke his arm, sadly it was not treated correctly and he spent many, many months having the arm re-broken and he details a very unpleasant time in his life when he was given some very painful treatment, it left him with an arm that could not be straightened and had a lot of scarring which he was very conscious of.
It did not stop him becoming a champion rifle shot and excellent shooting coach and captain of one of the top rifle clubs in England at the time, Twickenham, Middlesex, was Northern Ireland shooting team captain and champion.
He married Peggy Warwick Hill in 1937 and they were together until her death in 1989.
They had five children in total me being the last born, see family tree below.
Dad died in 2003 aged 90, approaching his 91st, still very mentally strong and still retaining his sense of humour right up to the last.
The saddest thing is he always wanted to know his father whom he believed died in 1918, however the truth appears to be he died in 1940 when dad was 27 years old. He would have been very proud though of his grandfather Maurice Walsh and the Webb side military history.
