Francis was the son of Francis Tinneny and Annie Dolan of Belturbet County Cavan, Ireland.  When World War I broke out he enlisted in the Enniskillen Fusiliers of the British Army.  He was only 15 years old when he enlisted and had to lie about his age since the minimum age for enlistment was 16.  He served with the Royal Engineers from April 12, 1915 through August 14, 1919.  He fought in the Battle of the Somme in France.
