The WD for the 115th Brigade from Jan 18 onwards starts here on Ancestry: click hereBut as Hywyn says, according to LLT the battalion was disbanded in Feb 18. On 12 Feb, the brigade WD notes that 11 SWB 'left the brigade'.

His SR is on Ancestry: click here. It seems that he went to the 28th Entrenching Battalion on 02 Feb 18, then was transferred to the RE on 06 Apr 18 (no. 359939).
