The National Archives is the place to begin. Click on their web-site (http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/default.htm)
Look across to the left of the screen on their home page and you'll see 'Military History' and British Army. - Click on the British Army link and follow the links according to what you know of your chap - it will lead you through to varous research gudies about reseaching military history.
If your chap served in WW1, from TNA's home page, just under 'British Army', you'll see 'First World War Soldier Records' - clcik on that link to find out more.
TNA has loads of resarch guides about its holdings, click here (http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/catalogue/researchguidesindex.asp?j=1)
to see all of them.
For army research guides, click on 'B' and then look at the links prefixed 'British Army'
You should be able to pick up what te regiment was doing either by searchng the London Gazette for the regimental name; contacting the regimental museum (might even be something on their web-site) - or checking the Army List, partial runs of which are held by many record centres and larger libraries - or they can be purchased via 'The Parish Chest.'
