Hello, I am a document trader & collector and recently purchased a very interesting WWII item. It is a roll of currency from many different countries during WWII. The soldier who collected the group wrote different things on many of the bills including many names. One of the names written on the item is John L. Adams.
On one bill is written:
"I took this 100 Yes note from a Jap sailor that I captured 6 miles south of NAHA Aug. 11, 1945. He was an officer of the Japanese Imperial Army. He was within 100 yds of our Conf. Area 148 AACS SQD. DET - 48. He said America was a good place & asked me about New York. He was from Nagoya, Japan. He offered no resistance but ran when he first seen us. I yelled halt and he stopped and lifted his hands."
I would very much like to know more about the item such as the history of the unit, etc. If there is anyone who can tell me who Mr. Adams is, I would very much appreciate it. In exchange, I am glad to offer pictures of the item as well as a full list of the other names that are written on it. Thanks, Joy Shivar
