Product description

Issued by guerilla forces operating in the Japanese occupied Philippines during the Second World War, this crude “guerilla money” features the portrait of US general Douglas MacArthur, who spent many years of his life in the Philippines. The note: Philippines 5 pesos. About General Macarthur´s: When he was promoted to Supreme Commander of the Southwest Pacific in 1942, Douglas MacArthur was no stranger to the Philippines. His father had been military governor of the U.S. territory in 1900. One of his first assignments after graduating from West Point was to accompany the senior MacArthur on a tour of army bases throughout Asia; he was stationed in Manila when he was promoted to first lieutenant in 1904. In 1935, at the behest of his longtime friend Manuel Quezon, the Philippine president, MacArthur retired from the army to serve as Military Advisor to the newly-formed Commonwealth of the Philippines.
