It is requested that steps be taken to reproduce, for use in the Philippines10 million Pesos P10, of Japanese occupation currency It is requested that the ten million Pesos be prepared in the following denominations, to represent old bills: The first million Pesos was counterfeited in Washington and flown to the Philippines on 21 December They were distributed to six different guerrilla groups.
The known block letter codes known on the American forgeries are: The Japanese occupation banknotes may not be the only ones counterfeited by the U. A hurried check with Washington disclosed that a huge shipment of Philippine pesos for the Mindanao operation had been shipped by special air transport.
Since the request for counterfeit Japanese occupation currency was sent late in we might assume that these were genuine banknotes.
However, other declassified documents in my collection show that: The request, filled and dispatched by highest air priority, was received in Australia during February.
Since the type of currency is not clearly identified, it is possible that this early forging of Philippine currency was the regular banknotes, issued prior to the Japanese occupation.
Lieutenant Robert Stahl says in: We also carried thousands of Philippine pesos-real money newly printed in Washington, D. C loosely packed with water and sand in sealed, five-gallon metal containers. The water - and sand mixture was intended to age the money, since Filipinos would be hard pressed to explain to the Japanese where they got crisp, new paper money.
Aging the currency this way was a brilliant idea-until it came time to dry it so that it could be spent.
During the rainy season, which seemed to be all the time, we sat beside fires waving wads of currency over the heat to drive out the moisture. We also had counterfeit Japanese invasion currency called APA in the islandsAmerican made, to spend freely to inflate the Japanese currency.
Later, Stahl mentions a fact that I never heard before. Workers accepted our APA currency even though we were passing out higher denomination bills than the Japanese ever printed. Some of the large denomination currency was later known to have been used by the Japanese troops.
That seems very risky to our Philippine Allies. Stahl apparently paid them with banknotes that were patently false since no such denomination existed. A Filipino found with such a note would be severely punished if not shot by the Japanese.
Then we hear that some Japanese soldiers used the banknotes. Did they think they were real, or did the pass them knowing they were false?
What an interesting concept. Campeau says in an article entitled: The sub was loaded and the next day we boarded the Narwhal. As I was boarding, Chick Parsons handed me a five gallon can with gunny sack sewed around it and soldered shut to water proof it.
This was 25, real pesos made in the U. We rigged up two small sleds, like miniature carabao sleds, and on them we pulled the three pieces that constituted a 3BZ radio, the two storage batteries required for its operation, a gasoline-powered generator, two five-gallon cans of gasoline, and three cans of real pesos I moved off in another direction and dug a hole about two feet deep and large enough around to take a five-gallon can.
This was difficult digging, for the ground was mucky humus threaded with a thick mat of twisted tree and plant roots.
Into it went one of our three cans of pesos.Improve your Hebrew vocabulary and test your knowledge with the game below. Here’s how to play: Select a lesson from the list; View and listen to the words translated into Hebrew. Improve your Hebrew vocabulary and test your knowledge with the game below.

The "cultural spheres of influence" of India, China, Europe, and Islâm are founded on the World Civilizations of their central or foundational regions, which may be defined by religion or culture but most precisely by the possession of an ancient Classical language attended by a large literature in that language.
In India this language is Sanskrit,, which is first of all the sacred language. When French Symbolist poet Stéphane Mallarmé's son died at the age of 8, Mallarmé wrote grief-stricken fragments of a long poem entitled Pour Un Tombeau d'Anatole that was not published until In the early s, Jack Hirschman translated this work, writing the manuscript out by hand, placing the words on the page to echo Mallarmé's placement.
