A propaganda newspaper produced by the Far Eastern Liaison Office (FELO) during the Second World War. The item is written in Japanese and was distributed to Palau Island, Truk Island, Admiralty Islands, Rabaul, Kavieng and Ramu River Finisterre Range. An English translation of the text is attached. This issue deals with matters such as the rumours about the whereabouts of Wang Ching Wei, the rice harvest in 1943, the successful operations of the Allied Forces in the South Pacific and the losses inflicted on the Japanese Navy, the advancement of the Australian forces in the Ramu River and Finisterre Range area, the retreat of the Japanese from Palau and the situation in Burma. It also touches on the occupation of Hungary by the Nazis, the destruction of war industries in Germany and the radio speech of Prime Minister Churchill on 16 March 1944.
