Attested
Discharged having made a something about his age on enlistment - misinformation?  Presume he claimed to be older than he was.

I agree with Ady, looks like absent from 20 4 1916.
It is quite possible he went absent without leave and the following month May he was discharged under Kings Regs as being under age .
