Ancestry has his medal records with 1st Battalion for the India Medal 1895 with clasps for Punjab Frontier and Tirah with the note Army Reserve on 26 Jan 98.  Also with 2nd Battalion the Kings South Africa Medal with clasps South Africa 1901 and 1902 and the note re-transferred to reserve.  He also has the Queen's South Africa Medal with a number of clasps - can't find that on Ancestry but it is here at the National Archives at image 10:

Thanks Nanny Jan.
That must have been an impressive set of medals in its day.
