There are 2 Ernest Whitaker in Keighley 1922 census, one at Ingrow Lane who was born 1890 and one at Beeches Rd who was born 1898. Malsis road is between the two. However Ernest Whitaker b.1890 served in RN and later RAF from his service papers (the ADRIC man was in Tank Corps) , so by inference it is the man born 1898 who joined ADRIC
