      English-born William Jarman left his Hespeler home to enlist in 1915. He had a job in a textile factory and wrote a will leaving all to his mother Annie.

      Jarman was part of a crew firing a Lewis machine gun. It was a fearsome, gas-operated weapon that could fire up to 600 rounds a minute. A bullet from an enemy machine gun killed him at Amiens. He was 21.
