Jane At War - The Original And Unexpurgated Adventures Of The British Secret Weapon Of World War Two - Jane Of The Daily Mirror
Published by Wolfe Publishing Limited: London 1976

" Jane is a comic strip created and drawn by Norman Pett exclusively for the British tabloid newspaper The Daily Mirror from 5 December 1932 to 10 October 1959. Jane was born when artist Norman Pett made a wager that he could create a comic strip as popular to adults as the strip Pip, Squeak and Wilfred was to children. Jane was first published by Norman Pett, on 5 December 1932 as Jane's Journal - The Diary of a Bright Young Thing, Pett drew her until 1948. Mike Hubbard began assisting Pett in 1946, and succeeded Pett. Originally Pett's wife Mary modelled for him, but in the late 1930s, she abandoned modelling in pursuit of golf. Pett then teamed up with Chrystabel Leighton-Porter whom he met while she was modelling for a class in Birmingham in 1939. "
