A useful one.  This confirms that the demob camp he was assistant adjutant in was in Kantara Egypt.
That was on his medal card but out of context didn't mean much.  This is recording him leaving Egypt in May 1920 for demob himself.

Do you see what I mean about them needing sorting?

Tjhe Protection Cert was issued to everyone during dispersal from the service to record that he was now out of the army.  The next two are out of order, he is struck off strength of the Officer Cadet Battalion having been grated a commission.  The other is two things in one, going to Newton Ferrers for officer training and then posted to 6 Battalion Rifle Brigade after commissioning.
