Private Arthur Hill

Private Arthur Hill

Many thanks to Jim Edwards of North Holmwood for this research.

Arthur Hill was born in Stratford. He was adopted by Mrs Jessie Emmeline Morton, who lived in Camberley after the war. There is no obvious connection with North Holmwood.

Arthur lived in Paddington and enlisted in Marylebone into the 9th Reserve Cavalry Regiment (H/18112). Like many of those who did their basic training in these reserve cavalry regiments he was posted to the infantry. He served (number G/16436) in the Royal Fusiliers (City of London) Regiment. He first went overseas when he landed in Gallipoli on 25th August 1915 with the 2nd Battalion. He died as a private on 28th March 1918, serving with the 4th Battalion, and his death is commemorated on the Arras Memorial, Pas de Calais.
