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 Lae and Salamaua. It is accompanied by an English translation of the text and is similar to leaflet J160. The message criticises the Japanese military leaders who have failed to evacuate ground troops from New Guinea and New Britain and are still forcing them to continue the war without supplies. It warns that the Japanese on isolated areas have no choice but to subject themselves to hunger and diseases.
