MAJOR H.L.PHILLIPS (Pair)
Medals about good very fine, mounted on pin for wearing
Served WW1 in the Mechanical Transport Section A.S.C.
His working life was spent building Railways,Docks, Bridges and as a General Engineer in India, working for Burn & Co.Calcutta.and was also at one time held a Government post as chief Engineer of the Port of Rangoon.His retirement was spent building Model Railway Engines,and Traction Engines,and as a Treasure Hunter!
He was appointed leader of of the Sakamvaya Expedition to South America do discover a £12m treasure said to have been hidden in the Andes by the Jesuits 200 years ago.A company was formed,with a capital of £45,000 and a party of 21 members set off with the requisite machinery for excavation pumping and rock crushing.
After many arduous months work in the Andes the expedition had to be abandoned mainly because of heavy rain setting in.and partly because the Bolivian Government did not approve of the venture!
Very little was found-a little gold, jewellery and pottery-insufficient to resume exploration.
On another occasion Major Phillips was a member of an expedition which set out from Southwick in a converted Brixham trawler,the VIGILANT,to search for buried treasure on Cocos Island off the Pacific coast of Panama.Much hard work came to nothing though,as the Costa Rican Government stepped in and confiscated the expeditions plant and machinery, and announced they were turning the Island into a penal settlement.Major Phillips commented:
"One way of thoroughly searching the small Island for Treasure".
Comes with several newspaper cuttings of Major Phillips, one has members of the Expedition sitting on the yard arm of the Vigilant,and several others show Phillips with a Steam Engine he had built,another from the English Mechanic and World of Science, dated 1906, shows Phillips in Burma with a photo of himself with his Children? in a Steam Car he had built himself.Another cutting from the Model Engineer and Electrician dated 1904 is signed by him as Mechanical Superintendent of the Port of Rangoon.Another cutting has Phillips riding on a Steam Train built by himself.Also comes with a history of Burns and Co

I entirley cocur with this officers application to transfer to the R.N.V.R.as stores officer.He will never become a pilot as he lacks nerve,confidence and judgement in the air-it is only a matter of luck that that he has not allready had a bad accident.In addition to his flight duties he has been doing duty as a stores officer,in which capacity he has shown extraordinary knwledge and zeal.The work appeals to him,and he has a complete knowledge of the procedure
of keeping Naval and Air Service stores.He has been of the very greatest value to me in running this sation,being the best and and most hardworking Officer I have got.He can take charge of men;they like him and work for him.I recommend him to be transferreed as a Lieutenant in the R.N.V.R.

A classical Scholar at Repton, he joined the Royal Military Academy at Woolwich, and passed out in February 1916,and joined the 53rd Field Artillery Brigade.in France.Mentions in detail 1st July 1916,and "Maintaining communications in the line by "dodging from shell hole to shell hole" over 1000 yards of open land and,being occasionally sniped at
and mending the breaks in the wire caused by German shell-fire.Sometimes it worked and sometimes it didn't.
1917 "all this led up to the battle of Arras on the 12th April 1917.It was while looking for a suitable spot for observation,near a building marked on the map as "Pont de Jour" that I got wounded by a bullet in the neck.When I got back to the Battery position the M.O.sent me to a Casualty Clearing Station and from there I was sent to a Hospital at Wimeroux,put on a Ship back to England,and woke at Manchester.
1918; "We came into action again on the Thelus Ridge,to the North of Arras,and just t the right of the Canadians at Vimy ridge.In fact I remember spending quite a lot of time with the Canadian Battalion at their headquarters ........"I was able to take a Gun gun forward of the Thelus Ridge and do some sniping at any movement I saw in the German lines or at night shoot up a crossroads area in their rear where there was was a possibility of of their transport bringing up supplies.
At this this time I was able to get from a heavy Battery nearby some new fuses for our H E shells which were far more instantaneous than the old No.40 fuse,screw in the new fuse and have a shell which would burst as soon as it touched down,without burying itself in the earth.It became a much more effective weapon"
