How old was Thomas Cole 801 2-24th?

I want to write a memorium to him and want to write a life span instread of killed in action. Anyone who knows the answer please post the answer and contact Gary.

He enlisted 23.3.1876 aged 20 years 10 months - you can do the maths for yourself!
If you want the exact date of birth a trip to the Family Records Centre near The Angel Islington is in order.

Just writing to query the relationship between Gary and Thomas Cole. He is my great, great uncle and I would like to know if you are also related.
