Phillips, Albert Edward (1884–1915)

Sergeant Albert Edward Phillips left South Australia shortly after the outbreak of hostilities. He was present at the memorable landing on Gallipoli, where he was severely wounded. Recovering from his injuries, he was promoted to the rank of sergeant, and returned to the firing line, where he was again seriously wounded. He was removed to a hospital at Berkshire, England, where he succumbed as a result of his wounds. At the time of enlistment, he was employed at the railway workshops, Islington, as a boiler maker. He was popular with his workmates and his comrades in khaki. He left a widow and one child who live at Prospect.
