Welcome to the Forum, David.

 

Please give us a little background for the man you are looking for, who I presume is an ancestor ?

You'll  need to give a bit more information than that I'm afraid.

 

What do the initials stand for?  Year/date of birth?  Area of the country?

 

The members of this forum have a huge wealth and breath of knowledge and will be only too willing to help but they will need more than what you've given them.

If you know his service number, do you know what Regiment he was in? As the others have said, we need a bit more to be going on with.

If you've got the service number correct, I assume that this is him: https://www.cwgc.org/find-war-dead/casualty/433850/bawdon,-/. He died in July 1917. 

To research a soldier's WW1 profile, you might read this: http://www.longlongtrail.co.uk/soldiers/how-to-research-a-soldier/. You'll probably need to access Ancestry or another family history website. These usually charge a subscription but can sometimes be accessed for free at your local library. Once you have searched for his personal records, you can seek the 275 Battery war diary; the daily account of its operational history. 

Here is some detail about Royal Garrison Artillery Siege batteries: http://www.longlongtrail.co.uk/army/regiments-and-corps/the-royal-artillery-in-the-first-world-war/the-siege-batteries-of-the-royal-garrison-artillery/.

Finally, here is a previous thread which discusses the battery around the time that Henry died.
