You could try the National Archives and see if he was discharged to
pension...'the majority of records of men discharged to pension between 1760
and 1913 are preserved in the record series WO97'
Once you have read the page, try going to 'search the archives' at the top
of the page and choose the catalogue. Put your guys name in and an
approximate dateline and see if anything comes up (remember try various
spellings of his name if not immediately successful)
If you find him you can then order copies online. I've used this service
when looking for a relative who had received a pension and though I didn't
get the right man, I was sent copies which toldl me the date of enlistment,
age, birthplace, occupation, places of service and date of disharge.
Also, Genuki have a good info on military records at
