He was a regular soldier ie was already serving with 2nd Battalion when war broke out (the medal roll tells us that).  That just might make it easier for the Regimental Museum to find some trace of him although, as you've seen, his service record has disappeared in the WW2 bombing.  Worth an email?  http://www.armymuseums.org.uk/museum/royal-highland-fusiliers-museum/ (they look after the RSFus).
