H.A.C. is the Hounerable Artillery Company. The custom at the time was if a man changed regiment, he also changed his Regiemntal Number, which makes tracing someone difficult. Also a lot of WW1 records were destryoed in the Blitz of WW2. The Regiment may have its own museum with the War Diaries, if not then would be worth tryting the National Army Musuem at Chelsea.
