The Paul McIlvaine Collection - WWII Short Snorters - Egypt
The Short Snorter Project
ONE POUND EGYPTIAN SHORT SNORTER  
Series: Cairo 18th March 1942 - Serial Number: J/53 784071
This is a 1 Pound note issued by the National Bank of Egypt.  Cellophane tape remnants on each end of the note indicate
that it was once part of a roll of short snorters. During World War II, Egypt was vital to Britain's defense. Britain and the
Allies did not have the wholehearted support of Egypt. Egypt considered the war a European conflict and hoped to avoid
being entangled in it.  Many Egyptians favored the Germans – not because they loved Nazi ideology, but because they
viewed any enemy of their enemy, Britain, as a friend.
