Post 326 – Monogram 1/48 scale PBY-5 Catalina – Frederick Cecil Phillips


Time to pay homage to Sergeant Frederick Cecil Phillips.

As always I had started my search on him with this image.


There was a tribute to Frederick Cecil Phillips where I took this image from.

Frederick Cecil Phillips

He was born on October 8, 1918 in Stoke-on-Trent, in Staffordshire, England. I found out that he died in September 2004  in Stoke-on-Trent.

You can read more about him here.

I have found little on him. He was probably married to Agnes Gilby in 1941.

I found he might have been married to Dorothy S. Windsor in 1949 and later to Susan H. Beer in 1970. Little else is known about one of the Saviours of Ceylon.
