DU127 Service medal and medical card of Joseph Finegan, Royal Irish Fusiliers
1 service medal
Joseph Finegan (Royal Irish Fusiliers, no. 18072) was my great grandfather. He joined up in 1899, lying about his age, and fought in the Boer War. He re-joined at the start of World War I. He was injured at Gallipoli. I have provided his service medal and medical card. He tried to re-join again at the outbreak of World War II, but was refused on the grounds of being too old. Labour Corps no. 552376.
