All the reverse tells us, is that it was printed on Kodak card, the K Ltd in the stamp box was in use from 1918 till the 30s.

Chrissy, his medals were issued and he received them, otherwise it would be recorded on his MiC (Medal index Card). You could try searching on EBay etc and sign up to the British Medals Forum
https://britishmedalforum.com/

In all probability his service record went up in smoke during the 1940 Blitz along with 60% of WW1 soldier‘s records. If he did continue to serve till after the end of 1920, the MoD still holds the records of soldiers who were born before 1901. There are 8 searchable spread sheets containing their names here (scroll down a bit)
https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/foi-responses-released-by-mod-week-commencing-1-december-2014

Its a slim possibility and I have no evidence that he did continue to serve.

It must be your settings, they open up ok for me. I searched the spreadsheets and he is not listed.

I have found something on Forces War Records but being as I haven't got a sub, do not know if it is just the medal thingy again or something else
