Default Ww1 service record mystery

Have a relative for whom I found medal card. Card states enlisted 14 Sept 1914 discharged 23 Jan 1919. Corps was the Reserve Calvary 3rd Battalion. However card shows no entitlement to any medals. Also cannot trace enlistment record.

Why no medals and help on tracing service record appreciated.

If he didn't serve overseas he would not have received any medals. Many WW1 service records were destroyed during a German bombing raid in WW2 so not unusual not to be able to locate them.
