The record is his entry in the Connaught Rangers medal award roll.  It does not give his religion - Pte is his rank - Private.

His associated medal card is at the National Archives http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/r/D3223743

This has an annotation saying he returned his two medals in 1934 as a protest.

There is a pension record for him on Fold3 (I don't have access).
