Yes, he has a "NW Persia" clasp to an Indian General Service Medal. Did you know he has two medal index cards? They show the same number of the 21st Londons but are marked "not identical". Looks to me as though he re-enlisted in 1919.

I don't think you will find them. His 7-digit number was not issued before 1920 and he looks very much as though his record will still be with the MOD.
