I can't help with WW2 service - it hasn't been released for online publication yet. There's an article for people looking for WW2 records HERE BUT I can't remember whether it applies to the Home Guard. Also note the text in red about processing delays.
I see on Ancestry that 290580 Gunner William Tickner of the RGA was awarded a silver war badge in 1920, he'd enlisted in 10 Apr 1915 and was discharged on 14 Mar 1919 due to wounds.

Durham Home Guard records are downloadable from the National Archives, but the rest are with the MoD.
Oddly the 100-year rule doesn't seem to apply to the Durham ones as my Uncle's records are freely available on there - he's 97 next month
