Not his enlistment date but very interesting though....

Distinguished Conduct Medal Citations 1914-1920
8135 LEACH F       The Duke Of Edinburgh's (Wiltshire Regiment)

Cpl F Leach 1st Bn
For conspicuous gallantry on the 31st August 1915 at Hooge. During the bombardment of the trenches, a part of the parapet was blown in, buying a man. Corporal Leach went round the debris across the open under a heavy fire, and dug the man out just in time to save his life.He had previously been to notice for gallant conduct at St Eloi, when he rallied his man and opened a rapid fire on the Germans immediately after they had exploded a mine close to our parapet.
