The start of the war found him still in the Indian Army running a hospital and slightly closer to the action in 1941 when he was appointed Colonel and Assistant Director Medical Services, 10th Indian Infantry Division around its formation; the Division was commanded by Maj-Gen. Bill Slim and at that time it landed in Basra, captured Baghdad and the oilfields of Mosul as part of the Anglo-Iraqi War, linked to WW2; the division invaded Syria until June invaded Iran as part of the Operation Countenance process to secure the Iranian oilfields from the Axis powers for the Allies and Russians.

I was well treated & made my get-a-way in this middle of battle when my captors were otherwise engaged! I am well & back at work busy as you can imagine from the news in the papers, it looks. You know how I like all this excitement & am glad that I'm no longer where I was this time last year....your devoted son, Teddie." He was appointed a CBE as part of a group of awards "in recognition of gallant and distinguished services in the Middle East during the period May, 1942 to October, 1942". His citation reads "Brig. PHILLIPS has been DDMS 13 Corps since 8 Apl 42; this period included the battles around TOBRUK beginning 27 May, the subsequent withdrawal to the ALAMEIN line and the fighting in that position.

Throughout that period the successful evacuation and treatment of casualties was due to the arrangements made and supervised by Brig. PHILLIPS. In this is displayed an exceptionally astute appreciation of the requirements of the varied and difficult situations arising, his anticipation of events from the medical point of view ensured that wounded were evacuated expeditiously and with the minimum suffering; the energy displayed by Brig. PHILLIPS and his personal influence exercised through frequent visiting of all Corps Medical Units was a great inspiration and encouragement to his subordinates and the source of confidence to those working in close touch with him, he was once taken prisoner but had success in escaping and carried on with his duties immediately." - although this award was on 16 February 1943, by which time the citation listed him as a Colonel. This period of the North African Campaign included the retreat to Tobruk, the defeat at Gazala, the Mersa Matruh defeat, the First Battle of El Alamein, which halted the Axis advance and led to the arrival of General Montgomery who Phillips was to follow for the rest of the war, duri
