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. An English translation of the text is attached. The leaflet reports the sinking of 32 Japanese coastal ships and 20 sampans off the Philippines and the attack on the Japanese convoy carrying supplies to their forces in Burma by the Australian Air Force. The message warns the recipient that the Japanese High Command is being forced to abandon its garrisons in the South due to these shipping losses.
