I have these foreign notes. A quick check on ebay suggests they might have some value.
I posted front & back.
I'd would like to get some opinions on these. TIA!!

The Australian note has, unfortunately, been "vandalized" on both sides. Now, this vandalism seems to have taken place during the war, so it might qualify as a "short snorter" - a banknote signed by military personnel on active service - but there aren't really enough signatures on the back to qualify as such.
I can't speak with authority on the others, but it wouldn't surprise me if that Bermuda note was valuable.

If that writing is "Hobart Tasmania" , that is the capitol of the Australian island state of Tasmania.

Yes, it says "Hobart, Tasmania". The date "1/6/45" below "Tasmania", is also hand-written onto the note and not part of the original note design.

There are a lot of beautiful world banknote designs out there & a lot of new collectors becoming more familiar with the hobby. You have a lot of nice notes!

Here's one similar to your Bermuda 5 Shillings (P-8b) & the seller is asking $50 (USD) but it is customary (these days) for sellers to ask more than book value:

A good way to start checking what notes you have is to use the banknote museum as a reference:

Good luck & have fun!
