Personal Items

This page includes scans of a number of personal items, ie relating to David Webb himself.

Birth certificate of David Webb
The above was too big for my scanner so was scanned in two parts then joined together. I am astounded that the seam is invisible. Fluke?

Letter Russell Twisk to David Webb; this was found in a NCROPA file.

David Webb in campaigning mode
The above photograph was forwarded to me by Sean Gabb; the original was not among the items I removed from David Webb’s apartment.

Badges: miscellaneous
Re the above, David Webb owned a large collection of badges, and as will be seen from this first scan, one very large badge. The above are all I intend to scan. The badge on your bottom right hand corner has been scanned upside down, so here it is again, the right way up and a bit larger. The NCROPA badge - which undoubtedly he commissioned - has a slogan printed on the back: “Badges are Beautiful”. Obviously David Webb thought so!

Curriculum Vitae

The following 9 documents all qualify for the name Curriculum Vitae; some are more complete than others:

CV 1 - this appears to be the earliest
CV 2 - a short one listing only some of the parts he played
CV 3 - a one page carbon; this was apparently produced in 1972
CV 4 - this appears to be the template for the one immediately below
CV 4a - one page from 1986
CV 5 - This was produced in January 1986
CV 6 - this is apparently an original template
CV 7 - directors and producers he worked with; the best copy possible
CV 8 - this appears to be the last version of this document that was produced

RADA Documents

The documents in this section were delivered to me by Goodman in the first half of 2015. Six of them are on large sheets of paper; I’m not sure what size but they are larger than A4. They were collected by RADA Archivist James Thornton on July 30, 2015.

Prior to scanning, these were reduced on a photocopier in a local shop so have lost their colour, in particular blue ink.

Among his other talents, David Webb was an amateur painter. The following works were rescued from his apartment.

Abstract painting by David Webb
Abstract painting in oils
The above abstract is said to have been painted by David Webb circa 1960; I have not seen it because it was scanned by its new owner.
Portrait in oils: I assume this portrait was painted by him. It might be his mother.
The paintings immediately above and below were collected by RADA Archivist James Thornton on July 30, 2015.

Dare To Be Different
