Before entering the Army, L/Cpl Webb attended Wilmslow High School and Macclesfield College in Cheshire.
He enlisted aged 18 and joined 1st Battalion The Cheshire Regiment in September 2006.
"Lance Corporal Webb was exactly the type of man you wanted around. Always with a smile on his face, always willing to engage in some witty and mischievous banter, he really did lift the morale of all around him.
"He was also an outstanding professional; bright, engaging and hugely talented.
"He had an obvious gift for intelligence work, which ensured he was at the heart of all that his company did on this tour."
