Ernest Waldron King : General Information

I wonder whether the postcard might have been sent by someone other than Ernest Waldron King, who appears in the 1911 Census as single, age 27, living with his parents, Thomas Waldron King & Caroline [Gibb], and younger brother, Charles Hume King, in Co Monaghan. It's possible Tom was Ernest's son by an early marriage or liaison, but at 28 Ernest seems too young to have been the father of someone old enough to be expected to carry on a correspondence ("you might write 25th..."). Also: Should "naval uniform" be "White Star Line uniform"? If the subject of the photo was indeed in the Royal Navy, he wasn't Ernest W. King.
