**
1914-15 Star; British War Medal ; Victory Medal; Commander, Order of St Olav, Norway, 1945.
* An officer who shows remarkable skill and courage in co-operating with our artillery, and in carrying out photographic reconnaissances. He also proved himself a very gallant leader on a recent raid, when he led two low patrols over the lines, attacking with machine-gun fire and heavily bombing enemy reserves. The machine in which he was flying was rendered useless for further service, so intense was the hostile aircraft fire.
** A most courageous and determined officer who has rendered valuable service on low reconnaissances. On August 8th, after dropping bombs to form smoke screens, he was attacked by five scouts; his observer was wounded, but Captain Hilton, flying at an extremely low altitude, with great skill evaded his pursuers and landed safely. His machine was so badly damaged that it had to be replaced.

* Special promotion for war services.
** For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. His battery was very heavily shelled for a considerable time. On three occasions when fires were caused in gun-pits he succeeded in extinguishing them and preventing the ammunition from exploding. On several occasions he dug out and rescued wounded under heavy shell fire, and also under heavy fire rescued a waggon and team which had been thrown into a shell hole by a heavy shell. He showed the greatest gallantry, coolness, and contempt of danger, and the fine behaviour of all ranks was largely due to his example.
