Arthur James Hannon was born on January, 18th, 1897, in Norwood, Ontario Township, Ontario to parents Robert and Hannah (Jones) Hannon. The family farmed on Lot 4, Concession 6 in Dummer Township.
It is unclear whether he returned home or stayed with his unit at Barriefield at this point, but the records do show that he travelled east to Halifax in early August. He boarded the transport ship Kia Oro on August 10th and began his voyage across the Atlantic.
