Citations:
LG Sup 28 July 1942 - "In May, 1942, whilst on a reconnaissance flight, this officer was engaged by 3 enemy one of which he destroyed. He then continued his reconnaisance and gained valuable information. Shortly afterwards Lieutenant Webb's aircraft was shot down in flames but, displaying great courage and initiative, he avoided capture and returned to his squadron. He has at all times displayed great skill and devotion to duty which have contributed largely to the high standard of morale maintained by his squdron."
