Graham(e) St John COOPER - triplicated records?

https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/5102337 was a private in the ASC. I have begun to populate his Life Story and have connected his service file https://search.livesofthefirstworldwar.org/record?id=gbm%2fwo363-4%2f007292677%2f01043&parentid=gbm%2fwo363-4%2f7292677%2f56%2f1043.

Among the records within his service file is Army Form Z.22 Statement as to Disability. On this form, subject stated on 27 April 1919 that he served in 15th Hussars from 06 Aug 1914 to 14 Oct 1914; was commissioned in RFA as 2/Lt from 14 Oct 1914 to 17 Mar 1915; was in RASC from 17 Mar 1915 to 27 Apr 1919 as a private

London Gazette (16 Oct 1914, #28940, 8255a) confirms commission 13 Oct 1914 as temporary 2/Lt RFA. LG (12 Mar 1915, #29098, 2500b) has commission relinquished 13 Mar 1915.

Is https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/5020503 the same man in the Hussars and is https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/5378438 this man as an RFA officer? Sadly not enough details in medal card transcriptions to be certain but I imagine you probably have access to scans of the NA cards (equally sadly, I can't draw a bead by reference to the medal cards scans on Ancestry :-0 )

According to the NA's Discovery there is also an officer's service file extant and I imagine that will have more detail within.
