Painted board from Navy Seabees supply box lid, with caricatures of Hitler and Hirohito, c.1940

A large painted sign or board from the Navy Seabees Sun Valley Rifle Range in California with name "Instructor S.W. Scott." Painted with humorous depictions of Hitler called "The Bastard," Hirohito called "Yellow Bastard," and a Goofy figure called "Scotty." Sign also reads "Gung Ho" and "Chief Armorer" with Navy Seabees seals. We found this piece in The Netherlands, which seems to show how far this sailor traveled with this piece of memorabilia. Very little damage to the paint. The white over "The Bastard" is painted on (white washed?). 17 3/4 x 29 3/4 x 1/4, 1.5 lbs. American, c.1940s.
