From The Perry Mason TV Show Book (Revised)
It looks like a case of murder and the eternal triangle. Frank Lawton is an old war buddy of Perry’s who has come out of the woodwork needing to be cleared of the shooting death of his boss, Scott Shelby.

It appears that Perry was busy during World War II. In this episode, the defendant is a buddy who fought beside him on D-Day. In later episodes, Perry reveals that he served on a minesweeper in the Pacific during the war.
+ Perry mentioned his time on Ulithi with an Air Corps buddy in "Misguided Missile" & his minesweeping in "Traveling Treasure." Mike Bedard 5.5.16.

Raymond Burr "appeared in 'The Duke of Darkness' on Broadway in 1944 before entering the Navy. Mr. Burr left the Navy in 1946," his NY Times 1993/09/14 Obituary noted. Mike Bedard 4.23.15
