Alfred John Glenister Weeden
« on: Tuesday 23 April 19 14:52 BST (UK) »
Alfred was born circa 1897 in Tunbridge Wells Kent. in 1901 he was at 118, Auckland Road and in 1911 at 27 Silverdale Road (the Census only shows him as Alfred or Alfred John Weeden).
FindMyPast has 5 British Army Service Records: 

Weeden Alfred John 7325 14th Battalion London Regiment. Image is for his medals.
Weeden Alfred John 513131 2/14th Battalion London Regiment Image for his discharge.
Weeden Alfred John 1214 4th Battalion Royal West Kent Regiment Image of statement of disability, address 2 Norfolk Road age 21 dated 12/2/19.
Weeden Alfred John 7125 2/14th Battalion London Regiment Image of casualty form 17/8/14
Weeden Alfred John 18971914 - 2920 4th Battalion Royal West Kent Regiment Image of Attestation, address 23 Silverdale Road.

1. He seems to have joined the 4th Battalion RWK, but was this attached to the 2/14th Battalion London Regiment?

2. the different numbers shown on the Images "could be" as he moved around and/or as in 1. above?

3. I have found him in Auckland Road and Silverdale Road, but not Norfolk Road. This could have been in between Censuses, but it seems clear that it is Alfred John Glenister Weeden at all 3 places and would like to confirm this.

Thank you

He transferred to 2/14th in 1916 - it's all in his (multi-page) army file on FindMyPast  - just click on the arrow to the right of the screen to tab to the next page (it's not just the attestation, there are many more pages):
