Statement, Red Cross File No 1240802, 4575 Pte J. PHILLIPS, B Company, 54th Bn, 17 August 1916: 'I saw him go down under shrapnel fire half way across to the German lines at Fleurbaix on July 19th, in the attack. He fell backwards and put his hand to his right breast as though wounded there. I was glancing in his direction for an order when I saw him go down. He called out "Go on" as he fell. I think there is little doubt that he died where he fell. I know nothing as to whether or not his body was recovered.'Medals: 1914-15 Star, British War Medal, Victory Medal
