One of dozens of letters she received over the years tells how exhausted and traumatized soldiers returning to East Anglia from the horrific Battle of Arnheim were offered baths and beds, but just wanted to read about Jane.
Christabel remained slightly startled by the strong reaction her figure and face prompted, but was clearly delighted that her beauty propelled bomber crews through perilous raids across the English Channel and deep into Germany.
However, the nudity was too much for prudish American audiences, and the attempt ceased during 1946.
Pett had created the original Jane way back in 1932, and she made her first appearance in the Mirror on December 5 of that year.
She recalled transfixing an entire regiment during an appearance and recording 62 marriage proposals in one week.
Built on the back of her coverage or rather her lack of covering in The Daily Mirror, Christabel also had a hugely successful stage show.
