Not sure about your last post.

His record, for 30.00, will have his enlistment and other service dates.

The war diary, for 3.50, is very unlikely to mention him at all.  It will though add to the outline that K Garrad has given and thus give a flavour of his war.   The action on 12 October 1917 is described in some detail and started in the area of square U 12 on this link
