My Grand dad served as a Driver in the MT section of the ASC. As far as I can find he had a club foot and therefore probably did not serve overseas. I know he joined at the start of the war and served until discharged on Jan 2 1920.

Does this mean he would;

1. Not have been awarded any medals?

2. How would I find his service number?

3. How would I find out where he served in the UK and what he did?

4. He was a patient in Graylingwell Hospital Chichester Sussex in 1919, it is thought suffering flu from the pandemic outbreak at that time.

Any help would really great, I do have photo of him which I posted here before. It has been suggested that this is him at a joint regimental training camp(various cap badges), he is seated in the middle playing a banjo. see attached.
