Paper Doll

Crew member, Leonard Robbins' father sent a picture of the crew standing beside their B-24, "Paper Doll", to the music publisher, and he in turn sent him copies of the cover sheet to the song.
Mr. Robbins then sent the copies on to Leonard, who distributed them to the rest of the crew.
After getting some of the guys to sign his cover sheet, Jesse Bradley sent it home to his girlfriend, now wife, Jean.
