You may remember an earlier mention of this soldier listed on the plaque in St James’s Church. There was indeed a Walter Richard Webb, born in Redricks Lane in 1888. In 1911 he still lived there and worked as a glazier. I had thought that this might one and the same as a person who joined the Coldstream Guards, went out France and died near Saint Nazaire.
I have now established that this is definitely not the case. So I am back to square one and the question is what happened to Walter Richard Webb and why was he mentioned on the memorial plaque? Any help will be appreciated. Thanks already.
