CHARLES JOSEPH HYDE
BAY PINES, Sept. 3 (Special) Charles Joseph Hyde, 47, World War
II veteran died yesterday at Veterans Hospital here. A native of New York City, Mr. Hyde came to Orlando 12 years ago from there. He was a bank teller, and a member of the Roman Catholic Church. Survivors include a brother, Alfred Hyde, Greensboro, N.C.
Charles J. Hyde
enlisted in the 3rd Fl. Div., NY National Guard on 17 November 1930. He
was discharged on 16 February 1933 "for business reasons."
Charles registered for the
draft in New York City, NY on 16 October 1940 and was inducted into the
Army on 28 January 1942 at Camp Upton, Yaphank, BY.
On 16 October 1942, Pvt
Hyde was transferred from the 507th PIR to Company H, 508th PIR as a
member of the cadre team.
He was transferred to
Service Company on 24 November 1942 although that company's morning
report reflects neither his arrival nor departure. It appears he
was probably transferred back to the 507th.
Applications for a
headstone and resultant grave marker for Charles J. Hyde in Bay Pines
National Cemetery, Bay Pines (Pinellas county), Florida.
