These Mem-O-Maps were sent to us by the grandson of Deadeye Clyde Tunk, dec.


These maps are by John G. Drury, 214th Ordnance Battalion - US Govt.

It's an uncommon occurrence to find these ephemeral maps, they were a handout to service men at the end of World War II and were an intended memento their visit as well as a means to orientation. The legend on each map encouraged service men to note where they “landed or anchored” and when, as well as where they “bivoucked or stationed” while there. Some maps note the airfields as well as headquarters and all vignettes of local culture and people. Some, such as the Okinawa show locals with quotes like “Hirohito Eat Hat” “Tojo Eat Shirt”.
