If you mean looking for his service records, then you will not find anything online, these records are not in the public domain, still held by the MOD.

However they can be applied for, see links which explains all.

Just to add these records can take 9 months to obtain them, and unless it the person themselves applying, they will cost £30-00, but free to the to the person whose records they are.
