I looked at the service record and it seems quite clear it is the correct Peter McCormack- He gives Elizabeth as his wife and an address in Barrack St Tullamore for her. It looks like he made himself younger when joining- Perhaps afraid he wouldn't be accepted. A very short stay however.

do you have a possible birth date for Peter? All I remember is that he was full age on the marriage cert but that could mean any age over 21.
