[Mod Edit: Adam
The date and the fact that it was a soldier who drowned in action caught my eye. This is from the CWGC entry for Pornic War Cemetery:

Many of those buried here were washed ashore after the sinking by the enemy of the troopship "Lancastria" in the Bay of Biscay on 17th June 1940. There are now 2 Commonwealth burials of the 1914-1918 war and 395 of the 1939-1945 war commemorated here. Of the 1939-1945 war, 160 are unidentified. Special Memorials inscribed "Buried near this spot" record the names of soldiers and airmen whose graves in the cemetery were not precisely located. There are 3 non world war burials here, 2 of which are unidentified.

Not sure how to find more details on this one. The age indicates that this would probably be a Second World War Military Medal.

Speculation on my part selecting the above details, but SDGW has him born in Dalserf and enlisting in Larkhall, so I think it likely these are the correct details.
