James Robert Hyde was born in Perth, Western Autralia on 31 Janaury 1914.

Hyde enlisted in the RAF in 1939.

Squadron Leader Hyde DFC was shot down over the Mediterrranean on 24 July 1942.

In 1939/1940 Hyde married Eudora, daughter of Sir Robert and lady Tweford. Their son was born about March 1941.

I am unable to find the marriage and son's birth dates.

Is someone able to assist me, please ?

Surnames: hyde, wreford,
Despite the differences in the names, this seems a strong possibility to be the marriage of your couple:

Marriages September quarter 1939 :
Hyde, James R and Wreford, Endora L registered in the Chippenham Registration District, reference 5a 243

Looks like the son's birth registered in the Grimsby registration district in the March quarter of 1941:
Births Mar 1941
Hyde, Julian R (mother's maiden name Wreford) reference Grimsby 7a 1680

You can check these out for yourself at

To verify the facts you'll need to purchase copies of the marriage and birth certificates as there's no other easy way to obtain the information contained therein.
They can be ordered online from anywhere in the world from:
(You should never have to pay more than the charges quoted on this UK government site.)

Dear Ann

Thank you !

I have spent hours on this problem - I am grateful.

I will purchase the marriage and birth certificates.

Hyde was a pre war New Guinea Patrol Officer who served in the RAF- and seemingly has fallen between the carcks of recorded history.
