Biographical Notes

Charles (also known as Charlie) was born on October 12th, 1893 in Hawthorn, Melbourne. He immigrated to Timaru as an infant with his parents Frank (Francis Ernest) and Mary Hind (née Raybould).

His brother Walter Ernest Raybould Hind also served in the war, but was killed.

Once he returned from war, Charlie married Jessie Diana Stevenson on May 19th, 1920. The couple had three children: one who died in infancy in 1921, Ronald Walter Hind in 1925 and Eric Charles Hind in 1927.

They lived the rest of their lives in Timaru, where Charlie worked as a teacher.
