1914 Star awarded?

Can anyone possibly help with this?

 

I had previously believed that my grandfather had been awarded the 1914 Star but it doesn't seem to be recorded on his medal card? 
He was with the 5th Royal Irish Lancers that first arrived in France in September 1914. I thought therefore he would have qualified for the Star?
I have attached his medal roll card.

 

Thanks

Hi Nick,

His Medal Index Card shows no date which usually indicates that overseas service occurred after 1/1/1916, so it looks as if he was a later replacement.

From my view, its possible, what Ive found , earlier awards (ie star) , might be on a seperate card J H Clark, ofcourse, its also possible he is recorded on Clarke.

Ive cancelled my Ancestry subs, but if you look for a service record , using the options, Initials, name, spelling, serial no (with  or without L, usually stood for Left), regiment you might find something.

obviously if you know middle name and address, it could also give a pointer. may take a bit of looking at many service records with the options. youmay get lucky.
