As he served after 1920, his record will still be with the Ministry of Defence and you will find nothing useful on-line.
See: https://www.gov.uk/get-copy-military-service-records

You will also need to know which branch of the armed services he was in (Army, Navy, RAF). You will need a Death Certificate, a Date of Birth OR a Service Number, and a fee of 30.
