My grandfather, Albert H Phillips was in a tank, mentioned in dispatches, but I don't know any more or have any records.

Welcome to the First Tank Crews website.

We are very lucky as his service record has survived. He sevred with the Royal West Kent Regiment as a member of the Territorial Force before the war. He enlisted in Sp 14 and served with the MMGS, in France, from Jun 1915, In Nov 16, he was transferred to C Bn Heavy Branch MGC (Later c Bn Tank Corps and then 3rd Light Battalion Tank Corps). He served as the technical quartermaester sergeant which was a Warrant offcer's appointment, until the end of the War.

There is no record of his tank being buried but we can explore this together

I was told that his tank was buried under rubble and only he survived. I'd Locke to know when and where.
