Just to add to the advice given by jim1, if you have already tried to upload it and failed, you may well have to now rename it.

The 2nd. photo shows him with 2 GC chevrons indicating at least 6 years service. The 3rd. chevron came after 12 years.

Many thanks. I can now try and find his war record though in researching him I have found several anomalies. But then families always have those.

What the 2nd. photo doesn't tell you is which Regiment he was in at the time. He may still have been in the Lancers but could just as easily been transferred to any other.
I can't see a Medal Card for him in the Lancers so either transferred elsewhere or didn't go overseas 1914-18.
