    Its a link to the War Office - Officers Personal Records - Series. This will be a file with all his records from joining to death. All of the internationals who served as Officers will have their own file. They are best read for free during a visit to Kew. Sometimes the content can be very scant so don't buy without being sure what you are getting.
