Explanation of Military Records

Need some help to interpret military record of Allan Woulds Bradley. Trying to find when Allan Bradley joined the 22nd Battalion. When he embarked . He was part of the 23rd Battalion, 2nd Reinforcement. His AWM Embarkation Roll number was 23/40/2. On the 16th of July, 1915 the unit embarked from Melbourne, Victoria, on board HMAT A64 Demosthenes.  But then in his records it states that he is part of the 22nd Battalion. I also need some help to understand what it says on his record.

Looking through the records there are several dates showing Allan joining the 22nd Battalion. The first date Allan joined the 22nd Battalion would be on 20 Sep 1915, then it looks like he became ill and was transferred to the Admin unit and Hospital. He was then reassigned to the 22nd Battalion on 4 Dec 1915, once he finally made it to the Gallipoli Peninsula. I did a search through Fold3 and found information if you would like it let me know and I can email you the file. I hope this helps you.
