Following a period of patrol duty off the east coast of the United States, he crossed the Atlantic in April of 1944 and participated in the invasion of France. His flotilla led the attack when the Navy joined with the Army in the final assault on Cherbourg. On August 9, 1944. his boat (PT503) was struck by a German shell. Of the 12 man crew, two were killed and eight were wounded. Boyd was killed instantly. His parents were Clayton and Bertha Brumm. The following article was taken from the May 2001 issue of PT Boater. It was written by Donald E. Fisher, a ship mate and close friend of Boyd's. "...Here is the Action Report for August 8-9, 1944: Boat 503 departed our berth in the Cherbourg Harbor along with the 500, 507, 508, 509 at approximately 1630 on August 8, the usual time for night patrols in the Channel Islands. I activated the radio and radar nets so that we could go to General Quarters as soon as we cleared the harbor. I then assumed my position on the stern 40mm Bofors cannon, portside firing gear. Boyd Brumm was on the starboard side firing position and Faucher and Kramer were the loaders ... At early dawn, we were greeted by relatively calm seas and heavy pockets of fog. I heard gunfire periodically but is was usual for the Germans on Jersey Island to fire 88mm cannon[sl by radar at PT boats when the boats would slow... We were headed south at slow speed and one of the officers came back to the 40mm and told Brumm and me to fire at the bridge of enemy ships as they became targets. As we proceeded through the fog, I heard our bow 37mm commence firing and then the 50 cal. machine gun erupted. I couldn't see anything, but fog and the forward section of our boat which blocked my view. I yelled at Brumm, 'Get ready when we turn.' I anticipated a turn at the end of our firing run but I had no idea which direction that might be. With all the noise I doubt if Brumm heard me. When the run started to the left or east, we brought the 40mm barrel over nicely and started firing at tracer fire coming in from the enemy ships. We continued firing as the boat made a 180 degree turn and then headed north at flank speed... The word passed that we should cease firing and then I noticed Brumm on the deck as he had fallen off his firing seat on the 40mm. I crawled over to him and he was unconscious. He had a rapid pulse and I told one of the loaders to tell the bridge what his condition was. I looked for injuries but I failed to find any blood or obvious penetrations of the body. I couldn't see well as my face and eyes were full of my own blood from a shrapnel wound to the head. The final report on Brumm indicated that he died of shrapnel wounds to the chest..."

    Dale Hubert Brumm kindly provided this photograph. On the left is a picture of him and probably two sisters (back to front): Helen Laverne, Dorothy Virginia, and Dale Brumm (children of Oliver "Clayton" and Bertha Leota (Lett) Brumm). He theorized the man wearing the cap to be Walter Lett, but Walter would have been in his 60s by the time of this photograph (taken in the late 1920s). That man doesn't seem to be that old. These may have simply been friends in the neighborhood that day, as there are no other close family members who would have had so many young children at that time.
