Battle of Loos
Arthur Hill, B Social 1906. 2nd Lt, 1st Bn, Middlesex Regt. Killed in action on the first day of the Battle of Loos.
‘His colonel writes that he was killed instantly while leading his platoon in the most gallant manner. He was an exceptionally fine athlete; in the cricket and football teams, and ‘Victor Ludorum’ for two years. With all his successes he was one of the most modest of boys, unassuming and simple-minded, the best type of English schoolboy.’
