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 Papua and Guadalcanal. The leaflet is accompanied by an English translation of the text. The message on the leaflet reports the withdrawal from Guadalcanal and Papua by the Imperial Japanese Headquarters. It states that Japanese troops in these areas suffered terribly from hunger and diseases due to the inability of the General Staff and warns that the first retreat will be followed by a second, a third, a fourth, and further retreats.
