On the subject of the alleged tape with flowers, is there any
evidence that there was a 'scotch tape' shortage during World
War II that forced the Army to get tape for its radar reflectors
from toy companies?

I always thought that during the war, it was the military that
had a priority claim to all resources and the civilians who had
to ration or do without. I know there were shortages of
gasoline, steel, many other raw materials, and food in the
civilian sector.

The Air Force's report on Roswell was the first thing I've ever
read asserting that there was a tape shortage, and that
(unknown) civilian companies were wasting it to make toys (of an
unknown type) when the Allies had a crying need for it to
prepare the big weather balloon offensive against the Axis

It's a wonder we won the war at all, what with all this
scandalous hoarding of scotch tape by unscrupulous toy
companies. :)
