23 Feb 1915 - McFadden Barracks, Portage Avenue

In a letter dated 23 February 1915 Leslie's uncle Charles Hallam Payne (1870-1960) - then living in Normanton, Derby - gave Leslie's address as "McFadden Barracks, Portage Avenue, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada". I have been unable to find any other record of a McFadden Barracks in Winnipeg, so this may have been a mistake on Hallam's part.
