Correct Jess, SOS means "Struck Off Strength".....which means he has effectively "left" a unit. Then the next item in his records should be TOS which means "Taken On Strength", which means he has "arrived" at a new unit and is part of that organization.
So, when he left a unit, he was SOS......when he joined a unit, he was TOS
