    Donald Duck US Navy Mobile Hospital #8 Insignia Original Art by Hank Porter (Walt Disney, c. 1940s). One of the unsung heroes of Disney's WWII efforts is artist Hank Porter who was a one-man designer of many emblems and insignias during World War II. Throughout the war, Porter designed around 1,200 different insignias! Here is a fantastic illustration by Porter for the insignia of "US Navy Mobile Hospital #8." The official insignia of the mobile hospital, deployed in the South Pacific, was obtained by the Bureau of Personnel and could be used on ambulances, trucks, signs, stationary but not on uniforms. The insignia features Donald Duck, who appeared in more insignias than any other Disney Character. This piece is rendered in graphite on onionskin of 8.5" x 8". The circular image measures 6.5". A rare piece of WWII Disney history! Condition is Very Good with mild handling and edge wear.
