No. His army papers have not survived.

His medal roll index card lists that he was awarded both the Victory Medal and the British War Medal.  So, - he served overseas in a theatre of war some time after 1916 (because he was not awarded either the 1914 Star or the 1914-15 Star).

As his service record has not survived it will not be possible to learn about his service, although it should be possible to get an idea of the kind of thing he might have been doing by googling "Army Service Corps" "Driver".
