I am a collector of World War ll memorabilia. I have one piece called a short snorter. They were done in both the pacific and european theatres. These were usually bomber crews or groups of men in battle that signed a piece of currency. Well sometimes these got very large and they would just keep on taping notes together and adding signatures. I have a piece of one because of the tape stain. I don't know if this is the right place to ask this, but I figured someone out there knows more than me about World War 2 in the pacific. I literally have spent hours trying to find the location of where this took place. I am into history anyway so it was time well spent trying to figure this out. So here is what it says, the question marks is the answer I am looking fo. "Taken From Jap Army Sgt. at ???????. May 3rd. Bumped off by Mike Council". If anybody can help me out that would be great. I do appreciate your time.

Here is the note

I think the place is Washawng in northern Burma/Myanmar, it's near Ledo Road. The date could be 3rd May maybe 1944, but I cannot find the exact NCAC unit stationed there.

  • If you could put a bit more explanation as to your thought process behind this answer, it would be helpful, garner an upvote, and turn your answer from "I threw a dart at a map" into a "I believe this is it, oh, and here is why..." – CGCampbell May 14 '16 at 12:40
  • @CGCampbell All the letters are readable on the picture. Although the name didn't ring any bell, I've put it to google and voila. I think the most fascinating and sneaky part was when I've clicked that I don't want the search term to be autocorrected to "washing". – kubanczyk May 14 '16 at 15:34
