Good Evening Charlie
Welcome to the LF Website
I am able to provide the following information.
In WW1 Sergeant 305780 Arthur Hyde served in the 2nd/8th Battalion of the Lancashire Fusiliers. Click on the link below to view his entry on the Medal Rolls held by the National Archives. His card can be downloaded for a small fee.
He appears on the Forces War Records Web Site which confirms his entitlement to the Victory Medal and British War Medal.
He also appears on the additional Medal Roll Index held by Ancestry.com. Both these two latter Web sites are subscription based and you will have to pay to view the actual entry. I can tell you however that he was entitled to wear two war wound stripes from actions dated 15.11.17 and 14.5.18. He was discharged on 20.8.18. Unfortunately the reason for his discharge is obscured by the National Archives water mark. Once you have downloaded his Medal Card let me know the full entry in the relevant section. I can then tell you why he was discharged from military service, most likely he was deemed unfit for further service. His personal Service Record is unavailable having been destroyed during the destruction of the central Depository at Arnside Street during the London Blitz of 1940. I am unable to find any reference to WW2 service. This can only be done by you contacting the Army Records Office in Glasgow. If you go to the homepage of this website and click on the button marked Postings Gallery you can then click on the 2/8th Bn to bring up details of their WWI activities.
Hope this has been of help.
