TF block 490001 to 510000 was allocated to 13th Bn London Regt.

His number is pretty high in that block i.e nearly 8000 men were numbered before him. 497913 not allocated in 1917 I'd say.

Just looked at his Medal roll. It says served in a theatre of war 1 6 1918 to 11 11 1918. So, he went over as RWF 77214 on 1 6 1918, served RWF 9th Bn, transferred to London Regt 13th Bn 497913
