Yeah, that Paul Drake. The private eye on the early Perry Mason series.



Before Perry Mason stardom…..William Hopper….served as an underwater demolition team frogman, deactivating bombs.

Petty Officer 1 Hopper returned from WW2 with a Bronze Star with Valor and Asiatic Pacific Medal with 5 Battle Stars.

His frogman team was chosen to lead the way for possible invasion of Tokyo/Yokohama Bay, a suicidal mission if there ever was one.
