Character description

1.) John May was the butler to Francis Godolphin D'Arcy Osborne, 12th Duke of Leeds.   During World War II, when then Sir D'Arcy Osborne was British Minister to the Vatican, Monsignor O'Flaherty approached D'Ary Osborne about the work that he was doing with Allied POWs.  The Minister could have nothing to do with these operation, but did mention that May was a very resourceful person.   John May worked closely with O'Flaherty.   His widespread contacts enabled him to procure needed items from the black market, and his friendships with the Swiss Guards enabled him to persuade them to cooperate in certain situations.
