Cabinet 15: Railway Magazines and Associations
C. Ernie R. Webber to G. C. Taylor, 30 November 1950. In Railways Germany scrapbook, [1952-56].
Corresponding in his preferred upper-case style, Webber informs G. C. Taylor that he can have copies made of items if other rail enthusiasts are prepared to lend their materials out. Such was Webbers desire for completeness, especially when back-issues or expensive items were no longer available on the open market. And to get the desired item, he was prepared to pay £10 as security against loss, an amount of no consequence to him. Incidentally, although a skilled financier, Webber was convicted on charges of theft, false pretences, and conspiracy in 1960. He was sentenced to a three year prison term.
