Foster Hyde, whose death in
action was reported a few weeks ago was well known about Simcoe.
He was a son of the late Lewis Hyde, and his mother lives with
another son, Charles, on the homestead, a mile or two east of
Bloomsburg schoolhouse, in Townsend Township, where Foster was
born 34 years ago. Mr. Hyde spent most of last winter at home,
though he had lived for some years in the West. Early in the
spring he went to British Columbia and almost immediately after
enlisted and went overseas with the 102nd Battalion, a B.C. unit.
He got to England in June and had only been at the front a very
few weeks when he was instantly killed.
