In loving memory of 'Phil'

Cyril Douglas Phillips

Major 3rd King's Own Hussars

Died of wounds in Egypt

20 November 1940

Aged 39 years

Greater love hath no man than this

that a man lay down his life for his

friends

Horses he loved & laughter & the sun

A song, wide spaces & the open air

The trust of all dumb living things he won

God's gift he knew & knowing loved to share
