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. It is accompanied by an English translation of the text. The message warns that the Allied bombers will continue attacking Japanese positions and will increase their strength day by day. It criticises the blunder of the Japanese High Command for putting their men in a miserable situation. The message concludes by urging Japanese soldiers to "think it over" as there is nothing they can do to prevent the Allied bombing.
