1942-45 badge Information help

I am trying to research a couple of things regarding my Grandfather's service in the '1st Airborne Division'.

He was entitled to wear a Light Bulb, but I don't know when he qualified for it. Does the No1 Parachute Training School hold details this far back ( he could have qualified for it in 1942. Is there any where else that would hold this info?

Also in his paybook he has qualified '3" Mortar course No 54 at Catterick qualification B.Y'. Any ideas what this course was as he had been a mortarman 18 months when he took the course. I did contact the Army Museum who did try to help me on this but couldn't find anything.

Any help or addtional information would be well received.
