Over the past few weeks at a local auction i have been buying up job lots of ephemera from one specific house clearance, all because i keep finding a couple of documents on each lot, tucked away and in need of returning together.
It all started with a release book.
my question is would this be the same guy?

i have a demob certificate and lots of paperwork to Albert Hurst 419061 RAMC tf, attestation date on the form is 7th may 1912.
I have also (in a different lot) got a very battered paybook which has thrown me. its is also to Albert hurst same attestation date of the 7th may 1912, and this time to Albert Hurst 1915 (army number not date) leicester regiment.

why the two service numbers, and why the change of regiment?

any pointers appreciated
