Walter Frank Jarka left Russia c. 1913 leaving his family behind......

His father Frank Jarka died in an accident in Russia 1918 - he was an employee of the Cement Co, at Novorossisk.
His mother Annie (next of kin on his army records)- address (Novorossisk Port, Portland Cement Co.) died of old age c.1923.

Any info would be good!
