Camp Haan was located by Riverside California.  The POW portion of the camp was established in late 1942 and housed 1200 Italian POWs. The POWs worked in Camp Haan and in the surrounding citrus orchards.  The Italian POWs were replaced by German POWs in April 1945.  Chits were not previously known to exist, but a small number were recently discovered in 1, 5, and 10 cent denominations.
