Distinguished Service Order
Squadron Leader Anthony Dockray PHILLIPS, D.F.C. (70539), Royal Air Force,  No. 248 Squadron.
This officer has completed a large number of sorties, many of which have demanded a high degree of skill and resolution. Recently, Squadron Leader Phillips flew the leading aircraft of a formation which attacked an enemy naval force escorted by fighters. In the fight a U-boat and a surface vessel were hit, while 3 of the escorting aircraft were shot down, one of  them by Squadron Leader Phillips. This officer displayed fine qualities of leadership throughout and pressed home his attack with great determination. He play a good part in the  success achieved. He has invariably displayed great courage and devotion to duty.
