Researching family military history WW2

How do I start researching my Great Uncles war medals ? Or more great uncle was a Captain in ww2 in the Artillery, we know he went to the far east but for some reason we never saw any medals. I have his service number, name and home address from when he joined up, would the RA association have some sort of register ?
Maybe you never saw any medals because he never claimed them? Take a look at the Veterans UK website to find out how to get his service records.
I would start by obtaining his service record. About £20 now I believe. Am sure someone here will provide the address.
Checking the London Gazette should confirm or deny any gallantry awards. The search can be a bit hit and miss so try searching on service number only and name only.
The LG should also have the dates of his commission and promotions.
