I have had a look on ancestry his service papers do not seem to have survived
Do we have a Birth year for him ?
the following is from the work of the late Bob Coulson
Born and enlisting in Middlesbrough, Thomas William Simpson did his war service
with the 4th battalion of the Royal Fusiliers, City of London Regiment.
Killed in action during the Battle of the Canal du Nord, Private Simpson lost his life on
September 27th 1918 and today lies in Fifteen Ravine British Cemetery in the village
of Villers-Plouich to the north east of Peronne.
