Letter re Lt Philpott 13 August 1918


5th C.M.R. Battalion



Officer Commanding

9th Cdn Field Artillery



I wish to express my appreciation for the splendid manner in which the section under the command of Lieut E. PHILPOTT which was attached to my battalion during our attack on August 9th 1918, was handled.


Lieut PHILPOTT was well forward and in constant touch with the situation, and at all times had his section in a position to open fire promptly on indicated and opportunity targets.  He afforded us the greatest support, and in my opinion proved himself to be a most courageous, energetic and efficient officer.
