in France until 1921 would suggest he was a regular soldier who didnt just "sign up" for the war. Papers for 1921 are not available yet

no medal card could mean no medals - perhaps he had an alias due to his age ?

There is a Medal Index Card for a MONTAGUE CLAYDON Suffolk Regt on Ancestry number 9695. Possibly him? Ralph.

Edit; Sorry wild goose chase this chap is too old to be your man. Ralph
