As PRC has already identified:

London Gazette: https://www.thegazette.co.uk/London/issue/30596/supplement/3732

"Temp. 2nd Lt. A. T. Pepper to be Adjt., and to be actg. Capt. (with pay and allowances as Lt.) whilst so empld., vice temp. Capt. C. H. Fox. 10th Feb. 1918"

 

Also:

"The undermentioned temp. 2nd Lts. to be temp. Lts., and to retain their actg. rank where specified: — ... 7th Apr. 1918 ... (Actg. Capt.) A. T. Pepper. Adjt."

https://www.thegazette.co.uk/London/issue/30715/supplement/6436  [LG could/and still can take a while to catch up with ranks!]

 

He also gets a later entry in the LG in Jan 1919:

"The undermentioned to be Adjts and to be actg. Capts. (with pay and allowances as Lt.) whilst so empld.: — ... Temp. Lt. T. Topping, vice temp. Lt. A. T. Pepper (since deed.). 25th Oct. 1918."

https://www.thegazette.co.uk/London/issue/31102/supplement/143 [so thus when his Adjutancy seems to have come to an end]
