Talk about Duck and Cover!

A rare wartime propaganda poster from World War II using Donald Duck to urge soldiers to use condoms (prophylactics), is being auctioned off this month by Hake’s.

It is believed to be of Australian issue. The lower right insignia “4MCD,” is believed to be for the Fourth Medical Corps Division. Art is signed “Cyril Jones.”
