    Description

    Hank Porter "Donald Duck" WWII Insignia Illustration (Walt Disney, c. 1940s). From the hand of Hank Porter comes this amazing original World War II Insignia artwork for the SW Pacific Fleet Area Signal Corps. The Southwest Fleet took up the Philippines, Borneo, Dutch East Indies, East Timor Australia, Papua, New Guinea, and the western part of the Solomon Islands. It was run by General Douglas MacArthur. The Signal Corps develops, tests, provides and manages communications and information systems during the war. This insignia artwork is trimmed to a circular 7", to the shape of many patches. Donald Duck is behind the wheel of a jeep with a radio, movie camera, machine gun, and a pair of pliers. The artwork is fully inked and hand-painted. Donald Duck was the leading character used for World War II Insignias and this one is spectacular. He appeared more than 200 times! Fine condition. From the Hank Porter Estate.
