  • Note:

    ?Geoffrey was serving with Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry.
    I have a resume of Edith Hodgson [ne้ Fison]'s diaries, which mention many Hodgsons, including the departure of Geoffrey in Oct. 1910 to Canada and his death in 1915 (from the exploding of a shell in his trench near Frise.) There's also plenty about Ruth and, I think, her elder sister Frieda, who is presumably Winifred Mary, born 1888. Ruth married again in 1932.?
