?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.?

The battle of Frise was in January 1916.
I have assumed he was unmarried and without children at his death.
