'Paper Doll' was the personal mount of Lt. (jg) Robert Burnell. The distinctive sharkmouth markings used on earlier aircraft by the squadron appear here in a simpler form. On October 24th, 1944, during the Battle of Leyte Gulf, Lt. Carl A. Brown intercepted a large formation of enemy aircraft at a time when the USS Princeton had suffered serious damage. During the intercept, Lt. Brown was able to down five of the Japanese aircraft, but was, in the process, hit and injured. He landed on theUSSEssex, as the Princeton was out of action. 'Paper Doll'was pushed overboard to make room for other landing aircraft.

"Paper Doll" byla osobním strojem Lt. (jg) Roberta Burnella. Výrazná kresba otevøené tlamy, používaná již na døívìjších verzích, byla na strojích F6F-5 malována ve zjednodušené podobì. Dne 24.10. 1944 bìhem bitvy nad zálivem ostrova Leyte odstartoval Lt. Carl A. Brown vstøíc velké skupinì nepøátel, kdy byla mateøská USS Princeton vážnì poškozena. Mezitím se Brown dostal do souboje s pøesilou japoncu, sám jich dokázal pìt sestøelit, ale "Paper Doll" byla pøitom mnohokrát zasažena a on sám zranìn. Vzhledem k poškození USS Princeton byl nucen nouzovì pøistát na palubì USS Essex. Stroj byl tak vážnì poškozen, že byl chvíli po pøistání svržen do moøe, aby uvolnil místo dalším pøistávajícím letounùm.
