Frank May was born in 1889 in Plymouth. He was the son of a compositor printer named William May and his wife Louisa Kate Harry. Frank has yet to be traced after the 1901 census, but may have been the Frank May who enrolled with the Navy on 1st May 1906, which he claimed was his eighteenth birthday. If this is Frank, he was actually only seventeen, but exaggerating one's age to join up is not unheard of. If it is him, he served through the First World War, leaving in April 1919.
