The Military Medal award announcemnet was published in the London Gazette of 23rd February 1918, probably a few months after the award.

London Gazette 23-2-1918

Awarded the Military Medal

266360 Pte. (A./L./C.) H. Claydon, Herts. R. (Dullingham, Cambs.).

http://www.london-gazette.co.uk/issues/305...upplements/2417

Also awarded the M.M. in the same issue were:

265548 Pte. A. P. E. Page, Herts. R. (Hatfield).

365339 Pte. (A./Cpl.) P. H. Snelgrove, Herts. R. (Letchworth).

Are you aware that Horace Claydon has a (singed around the edges) service record on Ancestry?

Also transcripts of the battalion war diary can be found here:
