    Occupation money was specially printed by the Bank of England ready for issue to the landing forces in N. Africa on Nov 8th 1942. Notes ranged in value from a shilling to a pound, and at the time of issue the current rate of exchange was four American dollars to the pound or 300 Algerian francs. This shilling note bears the autographs of a landing party at Oran.
