    Hank Porter - Donald Duck World War II Insignia Concept Art (Walt Disney, c. 1940s). Donald Duck was Disney's 1940s war hero. He was used more than any other Disney character in World War II insignias. This is one of the best Donald designs we have seen, from the hand of Hank Porter (1900 - 1951). This is original artwork for a WWII Insignia for VT8 -- The 8th Torpedo Squad. This was a United States Navy Squadron of torpedo bombers. They were assigned to USS Hornet, USS Saratoga, USS Bunker Hill and was also assigned to Henderson field in Guadalcanal. This group fought in the battle of Midway. The design depicts Donald Duck riding a torpedo bomb over the ocean. Drawn in graphite with red, orange and blue highlights on circular-cut and trimmed vellum-type onionskin paper measuring approximately 8.5" x 7", with an impressive image size of 8" x 4". Fine condition.
