Meine Geschichte

Arthur George Hill, a former upholsterer, was born in August 1884 in Dublin, Ireland. He was the son of William Frederick and Henrietta Louise Hill. At the age of 30, he moved to Australia. On February 8, 1916 he enlisted in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia and embarked from Melbourne on board HMAT A33 Ayrshire on July 3, 1916, with the 13th reinforcements of the 22nd Battalion, part of the 6th Australian Brigade of the 2nd Australian Division.

The 2nd Australian Division participated in the Battle of Broodseinde (October 4, 1917), a phase in the Third Battle of Ypres. The 22nd Battalion was part of the 6th Brigade, which attacked on the right of the divisional front. On October 2 and 3, the 22nd Battalion relieved the 23rd Battalion at the front line in Zonnebeke. During this relieve, the Battalion suffered heavy casualties through enemy shell fire.

Arthur George, aged 35, was killed in action on October 3, 1917. Private Hill was buried where he fell, north of Brick Kiln and Road (28.D.27.b.80.50), together with a few other men from his Battalion. His remains were not recovered or identified after the war. Arthur George Hill has no known grave and is remembered on panel 23D of the Menin Gate Memorial.
