C or Edward ?? Podevin

Can find nothing about him

But

1911 Census Hester M Pidduck(born 1871), widower at 39 & 41 Woolcomber St Dover. She is a Fruiterer and Greengrocer, with her sister Florence as assistant. Son & Daughter Edwin and Daisy

On 4.11.1911, Hester sailed on “Royal George” to Quebec, with her sister,  son & daughter. Hester died 8.1.1938 Toronto. Probate to daughter Daisy showed she still had £400 value in UK

So is this the same Mrs Pidduck, aunt of Podevin??

The Canadian connection seems good. No idea about name or initial - the 'C' is from the CWGC, while the name is definitely spelled as 'Eward' in the newspaper.

On the other hand, Woolcomber St doesn't look much like (illegible) avenue. If it's any help I think there would only have been Castle, Mayfield and Park Avenues in Dover then...

Charles Podevin was born in Kent on November 27th 1898. No Kentish address is given.

He was a Butler living in Washington DC when he joined the Canadian army in January 1918.

His mother is named as Catherine Podevin of 84 Denbigh Street, Pimlico, London,  SW.
