Which war are you referring to? If he served after 1920 then Service Records
are stll with the Ministry of Defence. The link below has details with
regard to applying for copies of Service Records.
If he was a WW1 soldier then surviving Service Records are at the National
Archives in Kew, London and online on Ancestry.com. Some 60% to 70% were
destroyed by fire during WW2.
My understanding about adoptions is that official records did not start
until about 1927, hopefully someone will be able to advise you further
