A propaganda leaflet produced by the Far Eastern Liaison Office (FELO) during the Second World War. This leaflet is written in Japanese and was distributed to Melanesia and the Netherlands East Indies. It is accompanied by an English translation of the text stating that the purpose of the leaflet is to confirm and intensify the doubts about the shipping position in the minds of the Japanese. The leaflet reports that the shortage of ships has prevented Japan from transporting abundant natural resources available in Japanese-occupied territories to the mainland and the territories colonised by Japan. The message attributes the grave shipping problem to the inability of the Japanese military clique.
