Terry Webb

Accredited Guide Number: 41

Terry has had a fascination for Military History since his schooldays. His grandfather was an “Old Contemptible” serving throughout the First World War on the Western Front, and his father as aircrew during the Second World War.

Terry himself served for 25 years in the Royal Army Ordnance Corps, being commissioned from the ranks and retiring in 1992. His operational experience included several tours in Northern Ireland and the Falklands Conflict of 1982.

After his army career Terry worked for London Underground in the Materials Logistics function, leading a team procuring and supplying spares for trains. He left in 2005 to take up Battlefield Guiding.

Terry is one of the Accredited Guides delivering the Government funded First World War Centenary Battlefield Tour Programme for schools, and is a Remembrance Travel validated guide for schools and young persons. He is also an Official Guide at Bletchley Park – Britain’s Secret Code Breaking Centre in WW2.

Terry stresses the need to understand the strategy behind battles, technology available, the ground, tactics employed, as well as logistic support & limitations. Individual accounts of those involved are used extensively to bring the story alive.

Well travelled, Terry has set foot on every continent, and visited over 50 countries.
