Tommorrow on April 11,2006 would have been his 109th birthday.

John George "Jack" Phillips was born on April 11, 1887 and lived with his parents and two sisters above a drapers shop in Farncome High Street near Godalming in Surrey, UK. Jack left Godalming in March 1906 to attend the Marconi Company's Wireless Telegraphy training school at Seaforth Barracks in Liverpool. After finishing his training in August 1906, he was posted as Junior Radio Officer on the White Star Line vessel "Teutonic". For the next 2 years he served on a number of liners, including Lusitania, Mauretania, Campania and Oceanic.

After leaving Clifden in 1911, Phillips returned to sea on the liner Adriatic. In March 1912 he was sent to Belfast to take up the post of Chief Radio Officer on the new White Star liner Titanic, then fitting out at the Harland and Wolff shipyard. He and Harold Bride installed the new wireless equipment.

Much mystery and not a little controversy surrounds the death of Jack Phillips. What is certain is that he died of hypothermia either on or near collapsible lifeboat B. Jack Phillips had celebrated his 25th birthday only 4 days before he lost his life in the early morning hours of April 15, 1912.

Happy Birthday Jack!!!!
