Those records are still held by the MOD so cannot be accessed online but you may be able to apply for them, They may not give you all the info they have and it will cost you £30 and take months for them to arrive

see https://www.gov.uk/requests-for-personal-data-and-service-records for details

this is from the CWGC web site
