Thank you,  which  page gives that information ?
I can see on page 6935 something about his wife a police enquiry, have you any idea what that would be about. 
Also it seems he didn`t get a pension, is that right.

 He had a son  born in Mansfield on 2 January 1916, died late 1920 aged 4.  Oh dear, it must have been a hard time for his wife.

The top entry in sheet you are looking at is related to the application by his wife for an increase in separation allowance after the birth of the fourth child in January 1916.  She had to produce the birth certificate.

The rest of the sheet appears to relate to a query started by his wife in Feb 1918 (he was still overseas) related in some way to her home situation.  There is the list of things that the system were asking the police to find out about and some exchanges of correspondence that obviously went on onto another sheet so the outcome is not known!

He didn't receive a pension which was only paid if a man was discharged disabled.  The form in his records entitled "First Award Soldier" confirms he has 20% disablement but says the causes are non-attributable and non-aggressive, ie not the result of service.
