For that you would need his service record which doesn't exist. He doesn't appear to have applied for a pension nor does he appear on the SWB roll.
He may have been wounded but treated in the field & returned to duty. Scars on his legs may be from barbed wire.
Had he been wounded by shrapnel from head to legs it's difficult to see how he could have survived.
