The LLT says 22/Batt. was absorbed by the 1/7 DLI in July 1918 so at least you know when he moved to them.

There is another circumstance which produces a medal roll/card entry for a UK regiment.  That is where the man is sent overseas, still "on the books" of the UK regiment to be posted only on arrival to his first "real" overseas unit.  Not saying this is the case with this man, just noting another of the innumerable vagaries of wartime documentation.
