A Mem-o-Maps published at the end of World War II, marking various memorable spots eg. "10th Army HQ", "77th Division Memorial", airfields and some local features.
Designed by John G. Drury of the 214th Ordnance Battalion US Government, produced for military personnel during the Second World War.

Mem-O-Maps' purpose was as a souvenir map on which troops could keep trace of their ‘adventures’ and movements. The maps represent an important historical period and integrate pictorial and geographical elements in a unique way.
The use of cartoons and familiar map shapes used to show the conditions and experiences that the troops must have faced in reality, also shows memorable spots, wildlife and banners "came in on good ship" and "departed on good ship". The legend encouraged service men to note where they “landed or anchored” and when, as well as where they “bivoucked or stationed” while there.
Includes a decorative compass rose and the title in Japanese.
