Your grandfathers name is not on the AIF nominal roll but I found him, I think in my Files.

The name is shown as Francis James Weeks Driver 512 embarked with the ARU (Australian remonuts unit) India late in 1917. He is shown as 28 of Adelaide SA and was a driver. These men went India and then were disbanded and RTA or went to the ARU in Egypt. I don't know if this is your grandfather but the details are close?

Many of these embarked men are not shown in the AIF nom roll for some reason unknow to me, purhaps someone else may know. I also don't know much about the service and unable to direct you to any books! You could try the National Arcivies on this net

Good luck

S.B.
