Short snorters were paper currency signed by people you were flying with or people you met. If someone signed your short snorter and you couldn’t produce it upon request, you owed him a dollar or a drink–a short snort. Thomas Farrow’s WWII short snorter consists of 19 bills of American and foreign currency taped together end to end and is 97 inches long. The first four bills are filled with signatures. The ten-shilling note lists bombing missions and dates. Tom Farrow was a B-17 crew member assigned to the 384th Bombardment Squadron in England.
