Notes

Son of Matthew Phillips; husband of E. F. E. Phillips, of 27, River St., Chippenham. Born Chippenham.

Formerly 26063 Wilts Regt

Mrs Phillips of River St recently received the sad news of the death of her husband in Flanders. Deceased before he joined up was a milk retailer in the town. Soon after receiving the intelligence of the death of her husband, the widow had further trouble. Her 7 year old boy went into a loft where a chaff cutting machine was being drawn by a horse. In the temporary absence of the person in charge, he got down into the machine and his left arm was so lacerated that it was found necessary at the Cottage hospital to which the little fellow was taken, to amputate the limb above the elbow.
