Believe that reads "Agric", i.e. short for Agricultural, so serving with 533 Agricultural Company. But I'd expect that to be Labour Corps rather than Tank Corps.

Cheers,

They seem to have sent him  to Agric company after service with the 14th tanks if I understand that correctly

He seems to have little more than 2 weeks with the 14th Battalion based on what you've posted  - 16th October 1918 to his posting to the 19th Battalion on the 2nd November 1918.

He's sent on attachment to the Labour Corps rather than being transferred, presumably as its post-war, hence retaining his Tank Corps service number.

Cheers.
Peter
