    Welcome to the forum.

    Your starting point ought to be to apply to UK MOD for his service papers -

    Requests for personal data and service records: a detailed guide

    Once you have his unit details you may be able to research his unit war diary but it is often the case that MID citations have been lost.

    In the meantime you ought to search the London Gazette and the UK National Archives to see what if any further details are available.

    Good Luck
