Plans to have Phillipps command T.B. 80 and provide torpedo duties for the Devonport Flotilla in the Annual Manoeuvres of 1901 appear to have been re-considered, as this boat is not mentioned in the official debriefing report.[2]

Phillipps served in Victorious from January 1904. He was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant with seniority of 30 June, 1904 and was possibly loaned to command a boat in the Annual Manoeuvres of 1904, but he died when a piece of machinery being hoisted out of the stranded Assistance fell and struck him on the head in October 1905.
