Obtaining his records from the National Archives is the foundation for any research:

We have (copies of) the war diaries in Camb, if you know his service dates, there may be a reference to him there.

My next door neighbour's father was also HLI as well.

This was drafted by Geoff Winnington-Ball and may be of help as well:
