    RCAF Casualty Report 839 in Globe and Mail, 1944/03/25

    lists the following simple entry under

    Missing After Air Operations
    May, James WO, Regina

    No next of kin details there either.

    perhaps he was promoted after his death.

    Then in list 1034 there is listed
    Previously missing - Now officially Presumed Dead
    May, James PO. Vancouver

    So thats not entirely clear but...
