206th Coast Artillery, Battery B - insignia

Love the patriotic color combination in this piece, which was created by Hank Porter in the spring of 1941. I thought the colors were appropriate for a Memorial Day post, which my friends in the USA are celebrating to honor their veterans. I added this piece of original art to my collection a year or so ago. Enjoy!

Hey, the bee character is identical to the one that alternate "bee" plot that was suppose to be in Bambi but that was cancelled. It make sense since this was made in 1941 and that the production of Bambi was between 1939 and 1942.
Great piece!!
