1939 ID Cards

My grandfather Robert Edgar Clarke born 20 Apr 1901 in Chorlton on Medlock (Manchester) is missing from the 1939 list. I know where my grandmother (in Manchester) and father (evacuated)were but my grandfather has eluded me. I wonder if he was in the military but, unlike my other grandfather, I can't find any information to confirm it. Any ideas?
