Major Campbell Hodges Snyder, 14th Engineers (PS)
Aug 14th, 2007, 7:43pm
 
Hi, I am doing research on family history.  Does anyone know what happened to Major Snyder before Bataan, after Bataan and before the Oryoko Maru?

It would be helpful if you supplied more information on Major Snyder.  In what Philippine Scout unit did he serve?  If you don't know the unit designation, what type of unit was it--artillery, infantry, cavalry, support?  Did he perish on the Oryoko Maru?   Editor

Campbell Snyder was in the 14th Engineer Division of the Phillipine Scouts.  He was the youngest officer to receive the title of major.  He died while attempting escape from the Oryoko Maru.

Approximately one page back in this section is additional information on Major Snyder.  This is the second query posted on the message board concerning him.  Editor

I made an entry last April where I stated Maj Snyder wasn't listed in Manny Lawton's book  "Some Survived".  I was wrong, as Maj Campbell H. Snyder is listed with a Sacramento address.

Sorry for that error.  From the information it looks like Maj Snyder was on Mindineo, and then brought to Luzon when those prisoners were being shipped to Japan.  Don't know what his duty was, as they had an Aviation Battalion that made the Air Fields so he wasn't in Air Field constructin.

Regards,

Is there any information about where the 14th engineers were after Pearl Harbor and before Bataan.
Thank you
