There is a Medal Roll Index entry for him but no service record that I can see.
Over 60% of WW1 service records were burnt in the WW2 blitz.

Thank you, I've never seen photo's on here, so I'll ask my daughter to show me what to do. I have James in a uniform but I don't know what uniform it is?  On my tree is would have been 1915, so he would have been 43

A close up his cap badge would be ideal.

Hello,

Is this James and Jessie and therefore the James you are looking for?

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XWRW-G3Q

Free BMD shows births for Grace, Victor and Arthur with mmn Gearing in addition to 1911 census children.

Arthur is registered in September quarter 1915. If it is the right family, his birth certificate would show his father’s occupation and address to check.
