Yes because he is listed as absent on the Indian census. The list was probably compiled a while before...

I imagine there were cases of servicemen erroneously recorded in two (home & away) places on 2nd April 1911 but there's the reverse of the coin - apparently if you were on shore leave you weren't recorded as absent on a ship's census. Of course, the question: "Where were you?" would have to wait a hundred years...!
