I have identified Owen Duffy a private Number 6397 in the Royal Irish Fusiliers and believe he is a relative, How can I find his age? Are there lists of enlisted men that I can access with more info and where ?

Thanks for your generous assistance with my request for assistance. This date will enable me to determine if this is a grandfather or great grandfalher in my Family Tree work. Tom
