1911 Census has his family at Stoke Newington which would give his dob as 1892, at Stoke Newington [likely registered in 1892, M Qtr, Hackney]

Hi, my grandad was in the 18thbn KRRC and was one of the very lucky ones. He signed up under the name of Victor Hopkins as his younger brother signed up using his name of Alfred Hopkins. His regimental number was c9046 and he was a sergt. He suffered wounds to his chest in 1917 and had a stay in Blighty, returned to France in the 20thbn and injured again in 1918. He was made Sergt Major after armistice and was a part of the occupation of the Rhine. 

Who knows he could have known your man!
