Hi,

Thank you for the clarification. If that is the case, unfortunately he would not be eligible to apply for UK Citizenship based on the fact that his grandfather served in the UK Armed Forces.

I hope this answers your question. If so, kindly rate the answer and provide feedback.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

Many thanks
