MIC says First date into War Theatre 22.7.1915 (France) with 111 Brigade of 37 Division. Trio of medals. The 13RB War Diary runs from this time through to 1919,WO95/2534.

Gezaincourt had three Casualty Clearing Stations at that time,one of them CCS3,which has one of the few Casualty Registers surviving,and is at Kew under MH106/362 for Mar 1918 forward,but how long it covers isn't recorded in the NA Catalogue. There are gaps so you might be unlucky there. Of course,he might have been treated at one of the other two, 29 or 56,who haven't such records.

37 Division's Field Ambulances were 48/49/50.
