"Thomas Fitzsimmons was born in the parish of St. John’s, Dublin, and attested for the 68th Brigade at Galway on 31 Jul 1876, aged 19. He served with the 88th Regiment in South Africa from 16 Jun 1877 until 2 Oct 1879 and subsequently transferred into the Leinster Regiment from whom he was discharged in 1902. This confirmed as his complete entitlement."
