I think I've found him;Looks to me like he's wearing an Army Medal for Long Service and and Good Conduct, Naval Long Service and Good Conduct, British Empire Medal (unsure), some kind of OBE/KBE/MBE, a Golden Jubilee medal (with silver clasp?) Diamond Jubilee medal, Army Emergency Reserve medal and that's all I can really identify. A whole mix there, none of them look like campaign medals to me.
