His medal roll index card says he entered the theatre of war (France) on 5.9.15

He was entitled to the Victory medal, the British medal, and the 15 Star.

There is a note on the medal roll index card to say that :

o'/c Recs (or Rees) Shrewbury requests insts re disposal of medals 4.11.21

However it doesn't say what instructions were eventually received, and if or when, and where, the medals were eventually sent, or if they were sent at all.
