Description"Indian Bomber" World War II Insignia Original Art by Hank Porter (Walt Disney, c. 1940s). The very first American military insignia to be used on an airplane was a Native American head symbol, and the tradition of the Native American emblem in the US military would continue from WWI into WWII. A popular symbol, this original drawing was rendered in ink on tracing paper by the unsung hero of WWII insignias, Hank Porter. Designs like this one can be seen on page 56 of the book Disney Dons Dogtags: The Best of Disney Military Insignia from World War II. This drawing nearly fills the 8.25" x 10.5" sheet, and it shows minor handling and edge with some wrinkling due to the moisture of the materials used. The condition is Very Good.
