Prescott war medal returns home

Legion President Frank Murphy, along with poppy chairman Rose Phillips, receives a Second World War Memorial Cross awarded to the family of Prescott flying officer Robert Webb. The presentation was made by Mayor Brett Todd, who secured the medal from an online auction originally brought to the town’s attention through an article in the Prescott Journal. Webb, who died while serving in the war, was the son of Walter George Webb and Ruby Marguerite (Lake) Webb.
