I have had a quick look and on ancestry there is only showing an entry in the  UK, World War I Pension Ledgers and Index Cards, 1914-1923 which I can't access as ancestry charge extra to view them in Fold 3.
More than 60% pf WW1 service records were destroyed by bombing fire and water in WW11, Medal Roll index cards do survive but don't give any personal information.
I took a look for his service records on Findmypast but there is nothing showing for him in military records as yet. There are the census records including the 1921 census and the 1939 register plus probate records. It is getting late here but others will be along to search for more.

Many thanks for your efforts, if I remember correctly there was only a few part records. I just need to confirm dates he enlisted/discharged etc.. unfortunately time is against us.. kind regards

World War One / WW1 Records sought..
« on: Thursday 24 March 22 08:01 GMT (UK)  »
Hi there,
I’m desperately hoping someone can assist with obtaining the service records of my Great Grandfather Walter Daubney which I’ve mislaid!!.. They are needed for a publication which goes to press next month.
Walter was born on 25 August 1888 in Lincoln and was in the trenches in arras during WW1 beside his brother Frederick H Daubney who was killed by shrapnel. I believe Walter was discharged and then later returned but I’m not sure as it was a long time since I read the records. He was living in Bolton before and after the war. Any help would be greatly appreciated!.. kind regards Jayhen

The 1930 census seems to have split some of the children from the family.

Poison Penman Given Suspended Sentence

BAY CITY, Aug. 9-- An elderly one-time British boxer Tuesday headed for Illinois to serve out a one-year suspended sentence and two years probation on charges of sending threatening letters through the mails.

James Daubney, a 76-year-old former Saginaw mission worker, won the suspended sentence from federal Judge Frank Picard Monday on the promise that he would go to work in a Friend's mission at Rock Island, Ill.

 Daubney had been convicted of threatening to drop an "atomic bomb" on Dr. A. Raymond Moon and other Saginaw residents. He was reported to have accused Moon and others of "breaking up my home" in a letter to Cecil Basklns of Saginaw.

Can’t believe they thought he had the capacity to activate an atomic bomb!.. I wonder who Cecil baskins was?..

I wonder what he had against Dr. Moon?

Thanks for that… Perhaps Moon was the cause of James divorce in 1938?.. There is a divorce record on Ancestry but I cannot access it to read it.. intriguing.. also is there any record of James dying in America

 I’ve seen a visit to Oldham in 1948 when sailed from America.. did he stay or did he return?

It appears he left the USA in March 1946 and returned in Feb. 1948.
