but not a lot of information added to it thus far

there is a medal index card added by Imperial War Museums but you need to subscribe to view it

You have probably found them by now but the Fawcett-Barry papers are at the Imperial War Museum
http://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/item/object/1030006642.

The Tolkien link is because JRR Tolkien served as a junior offer in the same (11th Battalion).

Many thanks everyone so far I have a learnt quite alot from all your help. I have my forms filled in and a cheque enclosed for£30 and will get it in the post tomorrow for his service details. The papers he has lodged with the IWM I certainly would love to see, I will get in touch with them and see how much copying is involved first, if they even do that and how much!!! Cheers everyone and a Happy New Year. Gerry
