Many Allied airmen in World War II made souvenirs of their travels by collecting currency from all the places they visited. A "short snorter" was a collection of bills taped together, often signed by friends. This short snorter belonged to Joseph Wehrle, and it includes paper money from China, India, Korea, Burma, the Phillippines, the U.S., Fiji, Australia, Germany, Japan, the Soviet Union, France, Bermuda, Iran, Egypt, Libya, Algeria, Morocco, Cuba, Canada, Portugal, Scotland, England, Brazil, French West Africa and British Guiana.
