Hi Sue,

SWB means Silver War Badge. See this link and scroll down:

The reference numbers on the medal card are the key to the medal rolls.

Unless anyone can spread any light I'm afraid your next course of action would be a trip to Kew to see the medal rolls and to see if his service record survives.
