At A 236th GARLAND OF BRITISH LIGHT MUSIC COMPOSERS find:
"Another ballad composer from the inter-war period was John Cooke, jnr. Popular titles included Why Should London Wait? and Very Quickly."
If he is in fact the composer, perhaps finding other of his songs would lead to a place where this one is hidden, or at least to someone who was interested enough to save some, and might know others?
