This is a very unique item. After the Army Nurses who had been captured in 1942 were liberated in the Philippines, many were flown home on an ATC flight.  This Menu lists their names and the majority of them signed it! There are some recognizable names on the menu if you have studied the history of these nurses.

At the moment, I'm reading Rampage: MacArthur, Yamashita, and the Battle of Manila which includes many first hand accounts from these nurses who were imprisoned at Santo Tomas in Manila.

I have not seen that book before. Is it recent?
