    Michala, welcome to the British Genealogy Forum.

    Do you know any more about GM? Age or birth and death dates, perhaps? Where was he born - it sounds as though it should be Wales? Or where did he live in civilian life?
    I've had a look at some of the likely registers available online, but can only find 3 Gwilyms, all with the wrong surname and born around the turn of the 19/20th centuries. No doubt those of our members who know more about that time than me will do better.

    National Archives catalogue -

    For further advice, see the research guide -

    https://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/...rds-1842-1925/

    The implication is (although it isn't explicitly stated) that full service records have not survived for men discharged before 1884.

    I presume you're referring to the record Peter found at Kew. If you look to the right of the page it says that you can either visit Kew n person and access the record or else ask Kew for a quotation of how much it could cost for them to send you a copy. Only you can decide how much you would pay for a copy of the records, and whether you would rather spend time and money visiting Kew, or just spend money and let Kew do the work for you.

    However do take note of Peter's final sentence regarding what's in the guide to service records:
    The implication is (although it isn't explicitly stated) that full service records have not survived for men discharged before 1884.
