Hi...Can I suggest that you amend the title of your post (using the modify button) to include his name, that way if anyone googles info for him using that name, they will be brought here.
Great offer and I hope it goes back to his Family.

He was awarded the Victory Medal and the British medal. He enlisted on 24-1-16 and discharged on 28-12-1918.  discharge was due to Para 392 (XVIa) KR....Kings Regulation 392 xvi refers to "Surplus to military requirements (having suffered impairment since entry into the service)"

I couldn't find a matching tree on Ancestry due to lack of date and place of birth.
You may want to try GenesReunited where you can contact living relatives.
