Arnold Maurice Hill joined the RAFVR in March 1939 as an Airman u/t Pilot. Called up on 1st September 1939, he completed his training and joined 25 Squadron in late September 1940.
Commissioned from Warrant Officer in May 1942, Hill was awarded the DFC (gazetted 2nd February 1943), still with 25 Squadron and credited with two enemy aircraft destroyed at night.

It came down 45km south of Munich, cause unknown.
The observer F/Lt. Gregory Bernard Brooker was killed and is buried in Durnbach War Cemetery.
Hill survived and was taken prisoner.
