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 the Philippines and Manilla. An English translation of the text is attached. This small leaflet reports the fall of Manila on 3 February 1945, which ended the occupation of the Philippines by the Japanese since 2 January 1942. The leaflet states that the loss of Manila may lead to the complete closure of communications between Japan and the South.
