The Reverend Arthur Price Hill was educated at Trinity College, Cambridge, and was ordained Deacon in 1878, and Priest in 1879. He was appointed a Royal Naval Chaplain on 14 December 1880, and served initially in H.M.S. Defence, before transferring to H.M.S. Inflexible in 1881. He served in her at the Bombardment of Alexandria on 11 July 1882, and during the subsequent Egyptian War. Between 1884 and 1893 he saw further service in H.M. Ships Neptune, Repulse, Rupert, Monarch, Flora, Penelope, Northumberland, and Alexandra.

Appointed to R.N. Hospital Haslar in 1893, Hill served as Chaplain there for three years before being posted to the Royal Dockyard, Cape of Good Hope, in 1896 and saw active service during the Boer War. After further appointments at the Royal Marine Artillery Barracks at Eastney (1901-05), and H.M. Dockyard, Portsmouth (1905-10), he was appointed Chaplain to H.M. Embassy at Vienna on 1 September 1910, and was still serving there at the start of the Great War. Returning to Vienna following the cessation of hostilities, he died there on 28 November 1924, aged 70.

Sold with copied medal roll extracts; a photographic image of the recipient; and other research.
