Help me find this Soldiers family...

 I am looking for help finding who this young soldier (Left) is and to what family he belongs.  The two picture were given to me years ago with the information that both pictures were George H. Leaman of Turtle Creek, Albert Co, New Brunswick.  I have had many people look at them over the years and I believe George (Right) and the picture Left are not the same person.

This young man (Left) is most likely part of the Price family of Westmorland Co, New Brunswick or the Leaman/Leeman family of Albert Co, New Brunswick.  He is in a Canada uniform from the World War One era.  

The picture on the right is Driver George Herbert Leaman b. 14 Jul 1892 in Turtle Creek, Albert Co, New Brunswick and was killed in action 8 Nov 1916 near Courcelette, Somme, Picardie, France.  George was my Great Great Uncle.  I will be doing a full piece on him in the near future.

I do not believe that one is a younger version as George has dark hair and eyes and the young soldier on the left has light hair and light eyes. However the ears and lips are almost the same.

I would love for everyone to compare the two photo and let me know what you think.  

Looking froward to hearing your opinion,
