Beaver Publications Part VI

I've done a few posts on the first mass market paperback publisher in Canada - Beaver Publications of Hamilton, Ontario who published three books in 1941. Recently I came across something that I hadn't known about Beaver. I did know that they issued two versions of each of the books - illustrated and unillustrated covers. I speculated that the unillustrated were published for the armed forces. 

Below is the proof of that - a box with the three books designed to be a gift for a member of the armed forces. It includes a gift card. There is also a brown box version. One of the books in the box is Cherchez la Femme?
