Andy,

There seems to be a batch of about a dozen men that transferred from the RGA to the AOC and were given consecutive AOC numbers.

Sussex: Satcher (Hamsey) and Gatton (East Grinstead)
Leicestershire: Pratt
South Wales: Evans (Neath)
Poland: Gonet, Deren

Forest Row: War Memorial and Camp WW1

Quote: “Is it possible he was transferred to RAOC after being evacuated…..”

Highly unlikely as according to your other thread and photograph he is still with the artillery and wearing a cap with an artillery badge in 1919..!

reply to andy_barnsley:-
You say that you have a copy of the 355 diary.
I have been searching for this for some time for my wife as her grandfather served in this battery.
I hope you won't mind me asking where you got it from?
I know that the IWM have a copy of the The Record of 355 Siege Battery.
Is this the same as the diary that you have?
Best Regards
Tim

The poster hasn't been on here for 4 years so may not see this. However the record of the 355 SB is held at the IWM book store.
https://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/item/object/1500017769
Whether it's still available is another matter.
There's a snippet about them here:
