I updated the page on Carl von Mackensen.

In the 1913 Vancouver directory, the resident at 778 Gilford Street was “C. V. Mackensen.” Although it is not certain, it appears that this person was Carl von Mackensen, sometimes known as Karl Mackensen von Astfeld. He was interned at the Vernon internment camp during the First World War.
