Yes M
I've looked at several sets of those records, they are often really hard to see the handwriting at all, as if the ink was washed away in places, never mind actually decipher it as often very small ! The original records weren't photographed until the mid to late 1990s, so the paperwork was probably also damaged by researchers handling-them before they became images. Sometimes the Record have been incorrectly indexed too, or mixed-up with another man's files.

Re our Archie, hopefully Ian will be able to fill-in the gaps about his wartime service, especially as he enlisted at the outbreak of the War yet was still in France in 1919 !

One hopes the "gas" reference wasn't too serious for him.. does this mean he was hospitalised for sometime after he first went to France in 1915 ?..
