Notes:The name 'Kilroy' was popularized during WWII as part of the phrase 'Kilroy was here' which was scribbled as graffiti by American soldiers all over the world, in often hard-to-reach or unusual places. The origin of the phrase is uncertain, being attributed to many different sources, but apparently first appeared in late 1939.
