It's quite likely that he never served in a theatre of war to qualify for a medal.

His service records are on Find my Past. It looks as though his number should actually read as T/278387.

As CGM states in post#3 his service number was T/278387 and his pension record is also on ancestry.

He served from 5.12.1916 until he was discharged on 8.3.1918 Home Service only. The record specifically states "France - nil".

The war gratuity confirms the home service only and that the service from Dec 16 to Mar 18 was his only period of war time service.

Thank you very much to all who have helped. I was under the impression (wrongly it seems) that even though a serviceman did not go overseas they were entitled to one of either the Victory Medal or War Medal
