Port (Left) Side - Starboard has KATHYRN ANNE - Walt Disney Character - "Snow White Theme"

Contributor - Brendan Wood

Info Contributor - Danny Viola
This was painted during WWII on an Italian airfield by my Father, Sgt. Gerald Viola (Aircraft Electrician). On the starboard side, he painted (at the request of the Pilot) a composite picture using a Vargas painting and a picture of the pilot's girl friend, KATHYRN ANNE, which was written in script. His work is distinguishable because it looks exactly like the subject he is painting. Another way to tell his work is the use of block letters. He painted BASHFUL (42-78443), DOC (42-51147), DOPEY / KATHRYN ANNE (42-78600), GRUMPY (42-51586), HAPPY (42-78457), SLEEPY (S/N ?), SNEEZY (S/N ?), and SNOW WHITE (42-51008).
